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


34-246.Warehouse receipts; issuance and cancellation; division; consolidation. (a) No warehouse receipt shall be issued except upon actual delivery of grain into store in the warehouse from which it purports to be issued. No receipt or receipts may be issued for a greater quantity of grain than was contained in the lot or parcel so received for storage and not more than one receipt may be issued for the same lot of grain, except in cases where a receipt for a part of a lot is desired and then the aggregate receipts for a particular lot shall cover that lot and no more.

(b) In cases where a part of the grain represented by a receipt or receipts is delivered out of store and a remainder is left, a new receipt or receipts shall be issued in the form and manner as prescribed by the secretary. It shall be stated on the face of the new receipt or receipts that such new receipt or receipts represent the balance of the original receipt or receipts. The new receipt or receipts shall bear thereon the number or numbers of the original receipt or receipts and the original receipt or receipts, upon which a part of the grain has been delivered, shall be canceled in the manner as if all of the grain has been delivered. In case it is desirable to divide one receipt into two or more, or in case it is desirable to consolidate two or more receipts into one and the warehouseman consents thereto, the original receipt or receipts shall be canceled in the same manner as if the grain had been delivered from store. The new receipt or receipts shall express on the face thereof that such new receipt or receipts represent a part of another receipt or the consolidation of other receipts, as the case may be, and the number and date of the original receipt or receipts shall also appear on the new receipt or receipts issued in lieu thereof. No consolidation of receipts differing more than 30 days in date shall be permitted.

(c) All new receipts issued for old ones canceled as provided in this section shall bear the notation of the date of the receipt or receipts as originally issued. All receipts issued on grain in special bins shall bear the number of the bin and the notation "special bin." All divisions or consolidations shall bear the bin number of the original receipt and the notation "special bin." Upon delivery of grain from store upon any receipt issued by a public warehouse, such receipt shall be plainly marked across its face "canceled" with the date and the name of the person canceling the same and thereafter shall be void and shall not again be put in circulation. No grain shall be delivered twice upon the same receipt.
