Harvest Update:
From: Frank Riedl


Wheat harvest is wrapping up after a month of cutting. It was a great harvest. Thank you all for the wheat you delivered to the Great Bend Coop elevators, it is greatly appreciated.

Wheat harvest was a record crop for your cooperative with over 5 million bushel coming in to the seven elevator locations. Wuality was good with average test weights near 60 pounds per bushel and moisture averaging 11%. Proteins varied widely on what we have shipped so far. They varied from 10.5% up to 12.7% with an average of 11.4%. This is lower than it has been in the recent past.

The large wheat harvest has some concerns. How will this wheat be moved soon enough to make room for the upcoming fall harvest? This will be extremely difficult if we are not able to get ownership of the crop. There are very few companies taking storage wheat making cash wheat to only grain moving. 33% of the wheat has been sold as of this date which we in turn have sold  and are moving it out. The 33% owner ship is far short of the 60% that we usually own at this time.

The Board of Management are trying to come up with ways to handle the upcoming fall harvest with the belief that we will be carrying a larger amount of wheat than usual. Our intention is to ship as much wheat as possible now and through fall harvest as well as the corn, milo, and beans as they are harvested and sold. Temporary storage will be constructed at some sites helping the storage situation. Many loactions will have grain coming in and going out at the same time.

You can help be filling your sales contracts as soon as the grain is delivered. This will give us an opportunity to move it out making room for more. If we work together we can make the coming harvest work. Allowing you the ability to get the crop out of the field and under roof.

Thanks again for the grain you delivered this year. Let us work together to make fall harvest as big of a success.
