The Minnesota Grain & Feed Association will be sponsoring one more grain grading school this year, holding the school at Jackpot Junction Casino Hotel on Thursday, September 21. The school is great for your newer employees but also serves as a good refresher for that seasoned veteran. As usual, the school will be conducted in a very practical manner, using actual samples of the various grain damage encountered at an elevator. The instructors are licensed grain inspectors, provided by Grain Inspection, Inc., and Sioux City Inspection & Weighing Service. The focus at this school will be on soybeans, corn, wheat and will also include working with identification of odors in grain, a problem more prevalent this year due to the amount of grain around and the amount stored in temporary structures. The school will begin at 9:00 AM and conclude by 2:00 PM (lunch included). Proper use of grain grading equipment will be demonstrated and each participant will receive a participation certificate. The cost for the school is $90/person for members and $100/person for non-members. The cost includes training materials, training personnel time, breaks and lunch. The size of the school is limited so early registration is encouraged.

To register, complete & return the registration form and your payment to the MGFA office.

On Friday, August 4, Minnesota farmers and agribusiness leaders participated in an engaging discussion regarding the 2018 Farm Bill priorities and other ag related issues with USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue, as part of his five-state “Back to Our Roots” RV tour. The event was held at the farm of Farm Bureau president Kevin Papp. The MGFA Executive Director Bob Zelenka was invited to participate in this meeting with the Secretary. The Secretary’s warm southern charm was certainly evident as he spent over an hour answering questions on a wide array of topics. Among the topics covered; he was very supportive of the need for a meaningful agricultural trade policy, the value of research and spoke highly of the Presidents infrastructure initiative and its potential positive impacts on agricultural transportation, especially for needed and costly waterway improvements.
