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
I hear you. Tough going it is. Murphy's Law rules. You a real trooper. Thanks for pushing it forward!
