Several years ago I sold 3 semi loads of food grade oats to general mills. Broker lined up a local trucking co. to haul. 1st. truck loaded in evening and delivered next morning and came back for second load. He loaded both his loads as full as he could. Walked around trailer as it was loading to pack it down by foot and shovel it in the corners. Heeped it up as much as possible and quickly tarped it to keep from running over. Next day they sent a young driver who had never hauled oats before. He asked me how full he should fill it to be close to legal weight. I told him I had no idea but the other driver had squeezed on every kernal hae could. When his trailer was about as full as he did with soybeans he told me to shut auger off. I told him that is not neerly enough as oats only weighs 32# per bushel and beans are 60#. He could not grasp the difference that would make in the size of the pile. I talked him into putting a little more on and then he left. When I got the load slips back he only grossed 63,000# So now I was several bushels off from meeting my contract. No one wanted to pay for sending a quarter load of oats 80 miles. Not me, not the trucking co., not the broker. After several days of phone calls by everyone General Mills finally broke the contract for full amount. I don't know if it cost anyone some money. I do know it did not cost me anything.
