PSC: Co-op Bought Grain Without License
OPINS Cooperative of North Bend, NE, has expired license
A co-op has been accused of operating as a grain dealer without a license in North Bend, NE, reports the Lincoln Journal Star.
The Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC) announced this week that it is moving forward with a cease-and-desist order against the Organic Producers Iowa Nebraska South Dakota (OPINS) Cooperative of North Bend.
According to a news release, the co-op applied in August to renew its grain dealers license but did not meet compliance standards. As a result, its license expired Oct. 1, but the co-op apparently continued to purchase grain.
