All of Harvest Land’s grain locations have at least one magnet somewhere within the system. These magnets serve many purposes and they all include aspects of quality control. Harvest Land provides grain to locations such as Hills Pet Food and Provimi, who require us to have magnets to ensure the safety of their products for their consumers.
Magnets also collect any pieces of metal (both large and small) that come through the grain dump. Trapping this metal before it runs through the whole system prevents things from being torn up from the sharp edges. It also prevents the pieces from entering the bins, where our employees could potentially hurt themselves during the bin clean out process.
These magnets are tested annually to make sure they pass the “pull test,” and are cleaned at least twice a year.
Harvest Land is committed to providing quality products to supply the food chain, whether that be for pets or humans, and magnets help us tremendously with such a mission.
