126.33 Receipts for grain.

(1)Requirement. Immediately after a grain warehouse keeper receives grain from a depositor, the grain warehouse keeper shall give the depositor a warehouse receipt or other storage receipt that includes all of the following:

(a) The name and permanent address of the grain warehouse keeper, the location of the grain warehouse, and a statement indicating whether the grain warehouse keeper is a corporation.

(b) A statement identifying the document as a warehouse receipt or other storage receipt.

(c) The date on which the grain warehouse keeper received the grain.

(d) The kind of grain received.

(e) The net weight of grain received.

(f) The grade and quality of grain received, if determined.

(g) The word “negotiable" or “nonnegotiable," conspicuously, if the document is issued as a warehouse receipt. If a grain warehouse keeper transfers depositor-owned grain to another warehouse keeper, the receiving grain warehouse keeper shall issue a receipt that conspicuously bears the word “nonnegotiable."

(h) A statement indicating that the depositor must remove the grain from storage by a specified date that is not more than 3 years after the date of deposit. This requirement does not apply to any of the following:

1. A warehouse receipt.

2. A receipt for grain owned by the federal commodity credit corporation.

3. A receipt for grain pledged as collateral for a loan from the federal department of agriculture.

(2)Grain ownership. If a person delivers grain to a recipient who is both a grain warehouse keeper and a grain dealer, as defined in s. 126.10 (9), the delivery is considered a deposit for storage unless it is clearly documented as a delivery of purchased grain. A receipt issued by such a recipient is considered a storage receipt unless it is clearly designated as a receipt for the delivery of purchased grain.

(3)Warehouse keeper's copy. A grain warehouse keeper shall keep a copy of every warehouse receipt and other document that the grain warehouse keeper issues under sub. (1). The grain warehouse keeper shall retain a copy of each document for at least 6 years after the grain warehouse keeper issues the document and shall make copies available to the department for inspection and copying upon request.
