(a) The name of the grain dealer and a statement indicating whether the grain dealer is a corporation.

(b) A permanent business address at which the holder of the receipt can readily contact the grain dealer.

(c) A statement identifying the document as a receipt for grain.

(d) The date on which the grain dealer received the grain.

(e) The kind of grain received.

(f) The net weight of grain received or, if the grain dealer receives the grain at the grain producer's farm, the approximate net weight of the grain.

(g) The grade and quality of the grain, if determined.

(h) A statement identifying the receipt as a purchase receipt, storage receipt, or receipt for grain marketed by the grain dealer as a producer agent.

(i) The grain dealer's promise to pay the total amount due for grain, less any discounts that may apply, within 7 calendar days after the date of receipt of the grain. This requirement does not apply if any of the following applies:

1. The grain dealer pays cash on delivery.

2. The grain dealer receives the grain under a deferred payment contract that complies with s. 126.19.

3. The receipt is clearly identified as a storage receipt.

(1m)Effect of failure to identify receipt. A receipt not clearly identified under sub. (1) (h) is considered a purchase receipt except that, if the grain dealer also operates as a grain warehouse keeper, as defined in s. 126.25 (9), under the same name, a receipt not clearly identified is considered a storage receipt.

(2)Grain dealer's copies. A grain dealer shall keep copies of all receipts issued under sub. (1).
