Harvest process

To ensure our growers are able to have their grain processed safely and quickly we employ seasonal Samplers and Receival Point Operators (RPOs) at each of our sites. We take on a range of people from local residents, students, back packers, retirees, travellers and many more. The people we look for can work safely and as part of team, are friendly, fit and healthy, reliable, able to follow instructions and are willing to put in a good day's work. Below is more information regarding the harvest process.

Harvesting Trucks Lining Up

Growers throughout Western Australia harvest their grain and arrange its transportation to a CBH receival site.

On arrival, a Sampler takes a sample of the grain, assesses it to determine the grade and quality, and enters the results in a computer.

The truck returns to the weighbridge to determine the total weight of the grain unloaded.  The price the grower will receive for the grain is based on the grade, quality and amount.
