Grain Dealer/Grain Warehouse

GD01-001 - In the Matter of the Grain Dealer's and Public Warehouse Licenses of Freeman Fertilizer Co., Inc. d/b/a McCook Feed & Fertilizer. (Division Director: Bob Knadle. Staff Attorney: Kelly Frazier.)

The Commission issued current licenses to Freeman Fertilizer Co., Inc. d/b/a McCook Feed & Fertilizer (McCook) on July 1, 2000, to conduct business as a grain warehouse and a grain dealer pursuant to SDCL Chapters 49-42, 49-43 and 49-45. On February 13, 2001, McCook agreed to a voluntary relinquishment of its grain warehouse and grain dealer licenses and the Commission took possession of the grain stored in the facility. On February 21, 2001, the Commission mailed letters to each producer shown by McCook's records to have had outstanding grain transactions with the facility. The letter requested producers to submit proof of claim for stored grain and cash grain to the Commission.

TODAY, how shall the Commission proceed? And, shall the Commission petition the circuit court for receivership of the grain and the bonds?
