(A) No licensed handler shall issue a receipt except upon the actual delivery of an agricultural commodity into storage in the warehouse from which the receipt is to be issued. No licensed handler shall issue a receipt for a quantity of a commodity greater than that which was contained in the lot or parcel received for storage or issue more than one receipt for the same lot of a commodity unless a receipt for a part of the lot is desired, in which case the aggregate receipts issued for a particular lot shall cover only that lot.
(B) If a licensed handler delivers out of storage a part of a lot of an agricultural commodity for which he has issued a negotiable receipt, he shall cancel the original receipt and issue a new receipt in accordance with rules adopted by the director of agriculture for the undelivered portion of the commodity that is still in storage. The new receipt shall show the date of its issuance and the number and date of the original receipt.
(C) If one receipt is divided into two or more receipts or two or more receipts are consolidated into one receipt, the original receipt or receipts shall be canceled in the same manner as if the agricultural commodity had been delivered from storage. The new receipt or receipts shall indicate whether the new receipt or receipts represent a part of another receipt or the consolidation of other receipts. The number and date of the original receipt or receipts shall also appear on the new receipt or receipts. No person shall consolidate receipts that were issued more than thirty days apart.
(D) The date of issuance of an original receipt shall be the date used for determining the oldest receipt for the purposes of division (B) of section 926.13 of the Revised Code. The date of any consolidation, replacement, or renewal receipt shall not be considered.
(E) All receipts issued for agricultural commodities stored in special bins for the purpose of preserving identity shall bear the number of the bin and the notation "Special Bin." All divisions or consolidations of receipt shall bear the bin number of the original receipt or receipts and the notation "Special Bin."
