Delivery of Grain – Sampling Methods used by Canadian Elevators

What sampling methods are used by Canadian grain elevators when receiving grain by truck?

Canadian elevators typically use a probe sample prior to unloading or a hand sample while unloading to sample grain received from trucks at the elevator.  Each delivery sample is assessed for quality, sealed in a tamperproof sample bag container and maintained along with applicable and corresponding paperwork (i.e., Declaration, Record of Receipt/Payment, etc.)
