233.24 INSPECT SCALES.
Scales in public terminal warehouses or scales used for weighing grain in railroad yards at
terminal points are under the control of the Department of Agriculture and subject to inspection
by it and are exempt from the jurisdiction of sealers of weights and measures. They must be
inspected at the request of a person interested in grain weighed or to be weighed on them.
If scales are found to be incorrect, the cost of inspection must be paid by their owner or by
the person requesting inspection. No scales found to be incorrect may be used until they are
reexamined and found correct.
