The North Dakota Grain Dealers Association will be sponsoring a grain grading school in July. The school will be conducted in a very practical manner, using actual samples of various grain damages encountered at elevators. The instructors are licensed grain inspectors provided by North Dakota Grain Inspection Service.
Proper use of grain grading equipment will be demonstrated and the focus will be on soybeans, corn, and wheat. Attendees will also work with identification of odors in grain, a problem becoming more prevalent as more grain continues to be stored in temporary structures.
Cost for the event is $90 per person for NDGDA members and $120 per person for non-members. The cost includes training materials, training personnel time and lunch. Each participant will receive a participation certificate. The school is limited to 35 participants so early registration is encouraged.
