How to take a representative grain sample from trucks and bins

Feb 23, 2017 at 03:32 PM CST

You’ll need:

Four identical pails that hold a minimum of 20 litres. Label two with an “A” and two with a “B.”
  • A grain scoop or sampling ladle
  • Sealable sample containers

As the grain leaves the truck or the bin, use the grain scoop to take samples at consistent and regular intervals to ensure the sample is representative. Remember, the larger the auger or the smaller the load of grain, the shorter the interval.
