17B.07 OFFICIAL TITLE OF BOARD; MEETINGS.
The official title of the board shall be "The Minnesota Board of Grain Standards" and it shall
have jurisdiction over all grain appeal cases brought before it.
The board shall meet as needed and shall establish the grades of all grain subject to state
inspection which shall be known as the "Minnesota grades," and all grain received at any public
warehouse shall be graded accordingly. Such grades shall not be changed without the concurrence
of at least two members of the board. At the time of establishing Minnesota grades, the board
also shall adopt such rules, in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, as it deems
necessary for the enforcement of this section and section
. In establishing the grades, in
addition to the physical qualities of the grain, there shall be taken into consideration the milling
and bread-producing quality of all grain products used as human food. The board shall determine
the grade, and dockage, if any, of all grain in all cases where appeals from the decisions of the
chief inspector have been taken and for such purpose they may request fresh samples of such
grain to be furnished directly to the board.
