Prev Article 2. - INSPECTING, SAMPLING, STORING, WEIGHING AND GRADING GRAIN; TERMINAL AND LOCAL WAREHOUSESNext


34-233.Storage in public warehouses; grain samples; weight certificates. (a) Every public warehouseman shall receive for storage or shipment, so far as the available capacity of the warehouse shall permit, all grain in a suitable condition for storage tendered to the warehouseman in the usual course of business, without discrimination of any kind. A representative sample of grain offered for storage shall be taken and agreed upon both by the owner and the warehouseman as being a true and representative sample of the lot of grain offered for storage.

(b) If the owner of the grain and the warehouseman agree as to the grade, the grain may be stored and warehouse receipt issued on the agreed grade, but either party shall have an official inspection if such party so elects at the time of storing the grain by submitting an agreed sample to an inspector designated by the secretary. The fees for the inspection of such sample shall be paid by the warehouseman and added to the storage charges of the grain.

(c) All grain taken into a public warehouse shall be carefully weighed by the warehouseman or one of the warehouseman's employees and a certificate of weight in the form approved by the secretary shall be issued and the weight so shown by the certificate shall be stated on the warehouse receipt. When grain is delivered out of storage at a public warehouse and if either of the parties to the transaction requests or if any dispute or disagreement arises between the party receiving and the party delivering the grain, the same method of determining the grade shall be used as prescribed for taking grain into storage. Any warehouseman desiring to issue warehouse receipts against the warehouseman's own grain in store may do so by complying with the regulations governing the methods of taking samples of grain tendered for storage and the secretary may designate the manner in which a sample shall be taken if grain is delivered on warehouse receipts at the public warehouses.
