News & Events


We would like to remind everyone to do the best job possible of removing soybeans from the pods. Pods and trash in your soybean loads cause all elevators problems.  This trash can plug up our bins and unload systems.  It can at times get so bad we have a hard time getting the beans out of our bins.  Trash also creates a fire hazard when we are drying soybeans.

This trash will also move to the outside wall of our bins and buildings.  Once this collects it often times will start to mold and generate heat and a very sour odor.  This will lead to discounts and at times these beans will be rejected by buyers.  A scoop shovel of trash at times can ruin or cause discounts on an entire semi load or rail car.  Please take the time to properly set your harvesting equipment and thrash the beans from the pods.  There may be times when we will have to discount loads that contain excessive amounts of pods.



 Please call and check space availability before delivering wheat to Appleton.

West-Con's fall storage and drying charges are updated in the grain tab on the left. 

Please remember that a 24 notice is required for all grain check requests.

Please make sure all scale tickets are in the correct name or names and you give us the proper disposition of the delivery.

Harvest hours will vary based on delivery volumes and weather conditions.


Harvest hours please contact the scales
