Default DFW Grain Buy #5

The time has come for another DFW grain group buy, I will be organizing and a friend of Brad's (Sewaneemall) will be receiving (my gameroom is still recovering from the last buy).

If you are interested, please send me a PM with your real name, email address and phone number, and the total number of whole sacks. If you like you can include the variety if you wish, though for now I am just looking for an idea of how many pallets we are anticipating. I will share the spreadsheet and price list with you.

Due to the time consuming nature of breaking down the splits, we have decided not to organize splits this time around. I would suggest splitting half or quarter sacks among other members - however, we will need one person to request and pay for the sack. Personally, I would be interested in half a sack of MOPA and half of Flaked Wheat, and maybe a quarter each of Rice Hulls and Flaked Oats if anyone else wants some of that action.

It looks like our actual freight costs have gone up, again, to $3.72 per sack, and there is no benefit to ordering 1 pallet or 2 - when looking at the price sheet, we are in the 2000#-8000# column. In the last buy we charged $5 per sack, and split the excess between the organizer (me) and the freight recipient. If everyone is cool with this, we will do so again - it makes the billing easier (as it is known before we place the order) and it makes up for the time and miles involved. I will use my share towards my newly purchased HBT lifetime membership. The rest will go to Brad's buddy who is generously allowing use of his freight dock.

I took a look at the new price list, it doesn't seem that there have been any changes to the grain prices.

Thanks

Chris

Pick up will be at a warehouse near 635 and Northwest highway. For those who can't get there on the day of delivery, we will take the grain back to our house and arrange for pickup individually. This is how we did it a couple of buys ago and it went pretty smoothly.

Is there a target date to have orders in by, or are we still drumming up interest?

1 more sack to go to complete a pallet. We will probably let it run a little longer just to see if there is the interest to fill a second.

Someone dropped out, leaving 4 available sacks.

Not been that much interest, thinking we will cap it at the 1 pallet.
