Keeping it Clean!
The Mossbank district is the home of a grain cleaning operation, part of The Jolly Farm. Seed cleaning is an important service to farmers throughout southern Saskatchewan. The cleaners utilize specialized equipment such as air screeners, separators and vibratory conveyors to remove other materials from grain and seeds. Grain and seed cleaning is an important because by removing unwanted materials from grain, these products will have a higher value than grain contaminated with straws, chaff, weed seeds, soil, rubbish, and other non-grain materials. Cleaning also improves the storability of grain, reduces dockage at time of milling, improves milling output and quality, reduces damage by disease and improves yields. Currently, Dave Gibson manages The Jolly Farm cleaning services.
Mossbank’s Old Wives Lake Mobile Grain Cleaning, as the name implies, provides farmers with seed cleaning services right at their own farm. For more information on this company contact 1-306-354-2446.
