Grain Grading and Handling.
Rendleman, Matt; Legacy, James
This publication provides an introduction to grain grading and handling for adult students in vocational and technical education programs. Organized in five chapters, the booklet provides a brief overview of the jobs performed at a grain elevator and of the techniques used to grade grain. The first chapter introduces the grain industry and explains the types of jobs available in grain elevators. A field trip is suggested. Chapter 2 explains how grain is priced, while chapter 3 discusses how grain is sampled for storability and value. In chapter 4, the technical method of grading corn is described, while chapter 5 explains grading wheat and soybeans and how such grading differs from corn grading. Several sample problems are provided in the last three chapters, and each chapter contains review questions. An appended booklet provides illustrations of various kinds of corn kernel damage. (KC)
