Due to increased biosecurity measures we're taking at the Highway 69 Feed Mill, all loads, including grain hoppers, wagons and ingredient trucks will need to be tarped. If you don't have tarps for your hoppers or wagons please contact our grain department, we have trucks available to haul your grain. Thank You.
WE WOULD LIKE TO REMIND EVERYONE TO CHECK YOUR BINS, ESPECIALLY IF THE GRAIN WENT INTO STORAGE A LITTLE WETTER THAN NORMAL. AS THE WEATHER STARTS TO WARM UP YOU NEED TO BE DILIGENT ABOUT WATCHING FOR CONDENSATION AND THE OVERALL CONDITION OF YOUR INVENTORY.
Let North Central Cooperative give you the opportunity to move your grain by taking advantage of our FREE price later, haul into any of our locations.
Please contact your NCC location before making any deliveries to confirm there is sufficient storage space available.
Pricing must be executed during normal trading hours on the CBOT.
Grain must be priced on or before 1:00 pm August 28, 2015.
A reminder from the Kanawha location agronomy department: Now is the best time to spray weedy fencelines. Many weeds have already emerged and are at a very manageable height. Stop by your local NCC location to match the best chemical with the weed types.

Here are a few things to remember when driving your equipment on the roads this spring. Travel safe and have a great planting season!
Clearly mark your vehicle. Make sure your vehicle and equipment are well marked with reflective tape, lights or flags, particularly if your equipment is oversized or extends beyond one lane of traffic.
Use your lights. Keep headlights, reflectors and turn signals clear of any dirt or debris that may have accumulated during work, and always use turn signals when turning and changing lanes. Consider installing magnetic, battery-operated lights that can be purchased relatively cheaply.
Install proper signage. Properly install slow moving vehicle (SMV) emblems so motorists around you are aware of the difference in speed between your vehicle and theirs.
Watch your mirrors. Always use rearview and side mirrors so you know your position on the roadway, as well as that of other motorists. The mirrors will help make you aware of your vehicle's distance from the shoulder.
Secure your load. Equipment that is being towed must be secured and properly balanced. Double check that safety-hitch pins are securely fastened before getting on the road.
Take it slow. Drive slowly, especially when making turns or driving down steep inclines. Lower speeds will help you avoid a rollover.
Travel on less-busy roads. When possible, avoid highly-traveled roads, especially during times when traffic is heaviest.
Keep passengers off of the equipment. Do not let passengers, especially children, ride anywhere on the vehicle except for inside the cabin.
Know your state laws and regulations. Stay informed of the latest codes and requirements in your state, as well as recommendations from the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) for equipment-like vehicle markers.
Practice good maintenance. Always keep your vehicles and equipment well maintained and your farm equipment insurance and farm car insurance current.
