I remember hearing a story of a guy who's barley got bought as feed. Six months later he gets a package in the mail, the wallet he'd lost during harvest the previous year. The return address was a malting company.

We hauled Malt to Richardson. Our Malt Barley went out in car lots not mixed, the maltster rejected the cars and sold them for feed. Richardson had samples of the submitted barley, and the barley we delivered. A rep from Richardson came to the farm and took samples of the Barley left in the bins as well. All the samples were the same, Richardson went to battle with the maltster and won!!

We got paid malt price!!

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Dispute your grain grade
If you (or someone delivering grain on your behalf) disagree with a licensed primary elevator’s assessment of your grain’s grade and dockage, you have the right to dispute the assessment. You can do so by asking that a representative sample of your grain be sent to the Canadian Grain Commission. The grade and dockage will be assessed by a Canadian Grain Commission inspector. Payment for your grain will be subject to the inspector’s grade and dockage.

When you (or someone delivering grain on your behalf) deliver grain to a licensed primary elevator, the elevator operator must take a sample of your grain. The operator will use the sample to assess grade and dockage for your grain. You have the right to ask to observe the operator’s assessment.

Used to grow malting barley. Got skinned on the cleanout, as everything was received over a big cleaner. So take the screenings home. Never dumped the screenings out, and had the same screenings from last load as first.

They never told me that there was anything wrong with my barley until after they had mixed it and shipped it ... so its hard to dispute the grain grade when you drop off the product and they dont tell you that the germination is bad until after they have sold it. The barley left viterra the week of the 20th of oct... I got the re germ results on the 10 of nov..... my feed barley was on there malt train ...

I don't think I would be quiet about it. Don't go in swinging, but let them know you aren't going to just go away. Keep working up the chain of command and get in touch with the CGC. Let them know that you will also go public if need be, and it's not slander if it's true. I wouldn't give up, it's winter time, not like the busiest time of year for most farmers, make some phone calls.

I can't imagine your frustration. I wish I could be some REAL help rather than just moral support. I've never experienced this particular situation but it was this direction that the industry took since the loss of the farmer owned co-op's that caused me to leave after 25 years.
