Old Crop Corn and Soybeans – Free Delayed Price
We are offering FREE Delayed Price on Old Crop Corn and Soybeans. This is for the delivery into Readfield or Center Valley only during the month of August 2017. Bushels placed in Delayed Price will be free until October 1, 2017, when new crop storage rates will be established.
We are offering the sale of Grain Condo space until August 31, 2017. Condo space is available for delivery into any CHS Larsen Co-op grain facility.
The price is $2.00 per bushel and gives you the right to store purchased Condo space for 20 years free of storage charges. In addition to the $2.00 purchase price, there is a 5 cent per bushel annual maintenance fee that will be charged to your account each August, starting in August 2018. Grain Condo is being sold in 1,000 bushel increments. If purchased, 25 cents per bushel is due by August 31, 2017, as a down payment, and the balance of $1.75 per bushel is due November 30, 2017. If you buy condo space and place a 25 cent down payment, you will be able to use your condo space for your storage needs this fall.
Grain Condo space is available through August 31, 2017 at which time the program is ending, and we are unsure when and if the program will be available in the future. This program is available to any grain customer, and will be available no matter how many total units are sold throughout the co-op. If you have questions, please call the Readfield or Center Valley grain office. The deadline to purchase Grain Condo units is August 31, 2017.
