WHAT WE WILL NEED
DRYING CAPABILITIES are needed to grow for Osterbur and Associates. All of our contracts need corn to be dried to 14.5% or 15% moisture.
ON FARM STORAGE is needed to grow as well. Osterbur and Associates typically offer both winter and summer shipments. A controlled environment is essential to ensuring quality for the shipment. A representative will usually probe the bin post harvest for a sample, to give both you and Osterbur an idea of purity an other quality standards. This helps both indentify any possible problems and remedy before the delivery of the grain.
TIMELY TRUCKING will ensure you are able to get your contract fulfilled. Osterbur doesn't own a phyiscal location and load all our grain through other facilities on a put thru basis. This can limit the amount of time Osterbur has to finish a barge. Before a contract is signed, we will provide an idea of how much time is available to receive the grain on contract.
