By Dakota Benear, Grain Originator

Fall harvest is not very far away and, while it is an exciting time for all, tensions can run high. Your local GCC staff is ready and willing to lend a hand! Ease your harvest stresses with these pre-harvest tips:
  • Verify all business units, landlords, and splits so that time at the scale is minimal with little confusion.
  • Update phone numbers and addresses on existing farm accounts, inactivate old accounts and add any new accounts so that your grain divisions go smoothly.
  • Verify all contracted bushels with your local grain originator to keep your grain balances accurate through harvest.
Come in, grab a cup of coffee, and let us help alleviate some harvest stress before it starts. We look forward to seeing you!
