Delayed Price will be offered to our customers during different times of the year based on the market for storage. The cost of Delayed Price will generally become cheaper after harvest. You won’t be charged any storage fees until you sell your grain. You will lose title to your grain, cannot load out bushels from the elevator, cannot forward sell bushel in Delayed Price, and we will be required to deduct Deferred Payment Contract Assessment, required by state law, for bushels placed in Delayed Price when you final price them.
Open Storage rates will vary depending on the market for space. Storage charges will be deducted from your grain settlement when you sell your grain. You will keep title to your grain, and you can request a Warehouse Receipt for grain on Open Storage. You have the ability to forward contract bushels in Open Storage. However, you will be required to pay the posted storage rate until the beginning of the contract period. Bushels in Open Storage can be loaded out of the elevator. However, if the grain is not milled through our feed mill, you will be charged a 20 cent load out fee.
Long Term Storage (aka Condo Storage):
Condo Storage is the space in the elevator that you own and have previously purchased. There is no monthly fee for condo, but there is an annual maintenance fee that will be assessed. You will keep title to your grain, and you can request a Warehouse Receipt for grain in Condo. You have the ability to forward contract bushels in Condo. Bushels in Condo can be loaded out of the elevator. However, if the grain is not milled through our feed mill, you will be charged a 20 cent load out fee. We are currently not offering any more Condo storage options to our patrons, but we may again sometime in the future. Generally, this option will cost $2.00 per bushel to purchase from the co-op, and the agreement will last 20 years.
Grain Bank is used for feed purposes only. Generally, this will cost 5 cents per month. Your account will be invoiced each month that grain is stored in Grain Bank. You will keep title to your grain in Grain Bank. Bushels in Grain Bank can be loaded out of the elevator. However, if the grain is not milled through our feed mill, you will be charged a 20 cent load out fee.
Any time grain is sold within 7 Calendar Days of delivery, no matter if it was delivered and placed in Open Storage, Grain Bank, or Delayed Price, if you decide to sell these bushels within 7 calendar days of when it was delivered, we will refund the storage back to you.
