These one-day hands-on workshops will feature the latest information on grain quality. The Grain Grading workshops will address and display many different grain samples, but will emphasize corn and soybeans. Presentations on the grading and appeal process will be given. Participants will learn what the official U.S. grades are and how to obtain a representative sample. Attendees will also learn how to recognize major grain damage factors.

The workshops will be under the direction of Federal Grain Inspection Service inspectors from the National Grain Center.
