If you die on top of the grain, how much are they going to throw away as contaminated?

What counts as contamination?

And does the company just send it overseas if they find any?

"Contamination" could be anything from stones, to broken corn and foreign material (BCFM or just FM for short.) Glass, pieces of fertilizer, a strange odor, bugs (both alive and dead) and pretty much anything that's foreign to the grain I'm working with

Eating. Not sure if its human or animal but its consumable. Ethanol cars are gross to work with

In a representative sample (between 1000-1050 grams) any amount in excess of .20% by weight is considered Sample Grade and they dump the car. What that works out to is up to people that don't suck at the maths

Test weights are consistently in the 54-55 range. Moistures are right in that sweet 13-14 spot. BCFM is varying wildly

Here's a way to say warm:

Get a leaf blower, a flare, and open up the hatches on the covered hopper. Start at the AB side and then just open all of them. Stand at the upwind direction and turn on your leaf blower aiming it into the car. While the air moves in it should pick up some dust and blow it out the other open hatches downwind. That's where you've pre-positioned your flare. If the grain dust is fine enough and in the right mixture be prepared for a nice fireball. The good part is you'll be warm.

Good luck.

Do you test for Aflatoxin? How deadly is it to farm animals?

Is this a USDA job, or a state job, or something private for one of the grain companies?

I wanted to do USDA Aphis work when I worked at Homeland Security, but I could never get an opening.

We test for Aflatoxin at the request of the elevators as well as the feds. Im not sure of the toxicity factor but I know its a bad thing.

What's the point? We'll never know the difference anyway. Nor will we appreciate it, unless you happen to be that one lucky consumer who opens up a can of corn and gets a can of rat droppings instead...
