This Week at WMC: September 16th
Phase I of the annual crop quality analysis project – collecting samples and issuing weekly reports – is wrapping up. Next, composite samples will be prepared and lots of sponge cakes, bread and cookies made to assess end product quality. Also this week we host visitors from South Asia, Montana, BNSF, and Chopin. The WMC Lab Services Board of Directors will meet to review financials and adopt a new budget.
Partner of the Month: September 2019
This month, we expect to complete the weekly harvest sample analysis and turn to composite testing and reporting. We recognize the close cooperation with USW and the other quality labs across the country working to complete the annual reporting process and meet USW’s deadlines for producing the CQ reports in time for the November seminars.
