Precision control maximizes returns on soybean exports
Loucks has seen the impact of these features on his bottom line. Since installing the machine in December 2011, Loucks noticed a steep decline on his Good Grain Clean Out (GGCO) which he attributes to precision control.
“When we examine our trash, there’s always some good grain in our clean out, and that’s throwing good product away,” he explains. “When we put the new Clipper in, our GGCO narrowed hard. If you can dial those things in you’re making money because you’re controlling production.”
And Loucks knows that maintaining success in this market relies on controlling output and maximizing good grain.
“For the Japanese customer, if they are satisfied, we don’t hear from them. No news is truly good news.”
