Did you just finish harvest and you want to know your crop quality results? CHS SunPrairie will probe and grade your bins for $95 per bin and $125 per quonset.
The sample is then taken to the CHS SunPrairie lab and will be graded on the following factors:
– Protein – Hard and Vitreous
– Damage – Shrunken and Broken
– Test Weight – Plump
– Dockage – Thin
CHS SunPrairie calls growers with the results of their testing.
A guaranteed price will then be given for each bin. Musty grain, sour grain and bugs will have additional discounts outside of the guaranteed price.
If and when the bins probed by CHS SunPrairie are hauled, CHS SunPrairie will use either the sample taken from the probe as the sample for the grade or we can regrade each load as it comes in, that is the grower’s choice. Also, the probing fee is refunded for each bin probed by CHS SunPrairie that is hauled to CHS SunPrairie.
Samples are kept for one year from the date of probing unless the grain is sold, at which time it the sample will be discarded.
If the grower wants a copy of the grade certificates then they can pay the charges for each bin and we will give them the copies
