Workshop Description

EACH WORKSHOP IS LIMITED TO 30 PARTICIPANTS. No walk-in students will be accepted. Please indicate your date preference when completing the registration form. Students will be assigned on a first come, first-serve basis. AAI will attempt to schedule you according to your preference. When this is not possible, you will be called. Your confirmation letter will specify your class date.

This one-day hands-on workshop will feature the latest information on grain quality. The Grain Grading workshop will address and display many different grain samples but will emphasize corn and soybeans. Presentations on the grading and appeal process will be given. Participants will learn what the official U.S. grades are and how to obtain a representative sample. Attendees will also learn how to recognize major grain damage factors.

The workshop is under the direction of Federal Grain Inspection Service inspectors from the National Grain Center.
