CHS SunPrairie offers the service of on the farm bin probing. We will come to your bin site and probe a bin for $95 and a pile/quonset for $125.
The sample is 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
We will call you with the results.
A guaranteed price will 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 before you start hauling. Also, the probing fee is refunded for each bin probed by CHS SunPrairie that is hauled to CHS SunPrairie.
Samples are kept for three months from the date of probing unless the grain is sold, at which time it the sample will be discarded.
If you want a copy of the grade certificates you can pay the charges for each bin and we will provide you with copies.
