This week Autumn Sicard joins the lab services team as our Seasonal Laboratory Assistant. Harvest season is a critical time for WMC as we receive hundreds of wheat samples for evaluation and testing. The results of our analysis are compiled into our annual PNW crop quality report and included in the USW national crop quality report. These reports are distributed internationally for buyers of U.S. grown wheat. Also this week, Janice Cooper travels to Kansas City for the USDA Grain Inspection Advisory Committee meeting. The technical team prepares for the next USW Korean Team and the Bakery Product Development Short Course starting on June 27th.
