Site Aerial View and Traffic Flow
Facility Scale and Dry Load-Out Entrance Looking SE from the Road.
- The facility roads are narrow. Expect some two-way traffic where signs are posted.
- This is an active worksite. Please be safe and courteous of workers and equipment operators.
- This facility is very dusty. When loading from a full hopper, we suggest that drivers avoid pulling air from outdoors into their truck by rolling up windows and turning the heater/air conditioner to the recirculating mode.
- Whenever the belt is running and loading the hopper, we suggest drivers turn off their trucks to avoid plugging the air filter.
Average wait time before filling
Maximum 30 minutes.
Average filling time
- If the hopper is pre-filled, it will take approximately 30 minutes to load a truck
- If the hopper is empty, it will take 30 minutes to fill the hopper and 30 minutes to load a truck (for a total load time of 60 minutes)
- The hopper can be filled and ready to load if the trucker gives a one-hour notice of arrival to the Scale House.
Equipment Used for Loading
All loading is done from overhead hoppers and bins. No self-loading is allowed. All loading must be done by Farm Nutrients.

Minimum load weight
Maximum load capacity
- Each truck will be allocated a specific amount of product. The maximum amount of product loaded onto the truck shall be limited to this allocated amount.
- Driver must know and adhere to the maximum weight capacity for their truck.
- It is expected that each truck will arrive at the site in a clean condition, so that product loaded at the site will not be contaminated by the contents in the truck.
- No cleanout is allowed on-site.
- Every driver must sign a cleanout waiver before loading. Waivers are available at Dry Load-Out.
Yard speed limit
Before leaving the facility, every truck driver should have:
- Bill of Lading (2 copies)
- Product Label (1 copy)
These documents should be picked up at the Dry Load-Out and then kept in the truck until the product is delivered to the customer. All 3 of these documents should be provided to the customer upon delivery of the product. If there is a malfunction with the printer, at the Dry Load-Out, truckers need to pick up the Bill of Lading and the Product Label at the Scale House on the way out of the facility.
Truckers are only allowed to get out of their trucks when tarping/untarping or picking up paperwork (Bill of Lading, MSDS, and Product Label) at the Dry Load-Out or Scale House. Except for this limited access, Truckers are expected to remain in their trucks. Truckers are not permitted any other access to the site.
