For those of you who are unfamiliar, a buyers’ call is pretty common in specialty crops. In this case it was time to ship in some soybean seed for processing. It caught up with us this week as we pushed it off and used last week to get caught up on other trucking commitments. We were able to get trucks and conveyors cleaned out. But little did we expect the temperatures to turn so cold. We spent three hours in sub zero temps Wednesday trying to get the gas motor on the conveyor started so we could load trucks. Did I mention there were trucks waiting on us? We finally gave up and pulled it in the shop where it took only five minutes of a salamander heater pointed at it to get it started.
