Grain Dealer/Grain Warehouse
GD01-001 IN THE MATTER OF THE GRAIN DEALER'S AND PUBLIC WAREHOUSE LICENSES OF FREEMAN FERTILIZER CO., INC. DBA MCCOOK FEED AND FERTILIZER. (Transportation/Warehouse Director: Bob Knadle. Staff Attorney: Kelly Frazier.)
Mr. Frazier stated that he had not yet received the affidavit from Home Federal Savings Bank. Ms. Sittig, representing Home Federal Savings Bank, stated that there was some mis- communication between herself and Mr. Frazier and that the affidavit would be sent to Mr. Frazier by the end of the week. Mr. Downs explained the soybean inventory shortage and responded to questions. Mr. Knadle recommended that Dakota Valley Grain LLC, in lieu of their request for $1,500, be allowed an adjustment of $908.08 due to the miscalculation of the quantity of soybeans. At the present time Dakota Valley Grain LLC has not paid the $1,500 which is in dispute. Therefore it is Staff's position that Dakota Valley Grain LLC has an amount due of $591.92 ($1,500 - 908.08) in regard to the disputed amount of $1,500. Ms. Wiest recommended that action be deferred on the Motions to Reopen for Further Evidence until the affidavit from Home Federal Savings Bank has been received and reviewed. Action was deferred on the motions. The Commission took under advisement the issue of the miscalculation of soybeans.
