ExamNet Measured Self Inventory (MSI) Program Rollout

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) has rolled out a Measured Self Inventory (MSI) program for licensed grain dealers. The program utilizes ExamNet software. Measured Self Inventory is useful to dealers for managing and identifying trends in grain quality, reconciling inter-company transfers, identifying grain theft, and satisfying lenders. Regulators can save more than half of their on-site time spent on audits each year through spot-checks and audits of dealer records conducted by MDARD staff. See Measured Self Inventory (MSI) Program Rollout for more information.
