Not that anybody can do anything but in Ontario some folks had some real bad issues with VOM in last yrs corn crop

We have been shipping some corn each month since April

We had 30,000 bu lined up for this weeks deliveries

Our Vom tests at the end user has ranged from less than 1% to under 3%

There is no discount for under 3% and we had taken some corn from almost every bin, thus we were feeling fairly secure our corn was clean


Our last load today was rejected. That means it  was oveer 8% VOM. The corn came from the same bins all day. Did we hit a bad spot or did one too many kernels get into the testing equipment at the end user

Needlesss to say that corn came back home

We shall see what happens tomorrow with different bins

Last fall some fields, in Ontario, were destroyed because the VOM was so high.

I think one place was loading boats, at more than 8% VOM with at least a 2.00 discount and even then many fields were not accepted

VOM plus late planting with large acres not even started will test the cash flow of some families

At least we have a large % planted, late but planted

Just starting to emerge on the 1st planting

If we escape heavy rain this week we will get a lot of wet spots dried up and planted

No beans in the ground

The bean planter is hooked up and ready to go

Sorry to hear your last load of corn got rejected Wayne.

Can you try to blend it or treat it or do something to make it acceptable?

We unlooded and will try to blend

1st we have to find how bad the problem may be

Almost every day at least 2 or more loads are rejected that we know about

 Maybe we just hit a bad spot in the bin, from one field

We thought we were okay but now we don't know

The shortage of  clean corn is one reason our basis is so strong
