NEW COMMODITY PURCHASING POLICY  08/10/11 1:39:44 PM

EFFECTIVE APRIL 15, 2008 Due to the drastic changes in the wheat markets this year, we have revised our grain purchasing policies to protect the company against ever increasing market volatility. The futures markets open at 7:30am and close at 11:15am. Cash prices on all grains will be established each morning as early as we are able(approximately 9:00am) until 11:00am, to provide us with time to market grain and hedge purchases while the corresponding exchanges are still open and trading. Afternoon markets for soft white wheat and barley will be open from 2:30 until 4:30pm. Prices will remain subject to prevailing Portland bids. There will be no markets in the afternoon for Hard Red Winter or Dark Northern Spring due to the need for futures.
