233.22 WITHHOLDING GRAIN.

The owner or consignee of grain consigned to a public terminal warehouse may have the grain withheld from storage and delivered to or at the direction of the owner or consignee by giving notice to the carrier who possesses the grain and to the warehouse operator to whom the grain was consigned, and paying all charges that may be a lien on the grain. The grain must be removed within 24 hours after the car or boat containing it is placed in a proper and convenient place for unloading. If the grain is delivered contrary to the notice, the warehouse operator and the carrier delivering the grain are jointly and severally liable to the owner for double its value.
