Farmer’s Co-op Begins Grain Bin Expansion
New 919,000-bushel bin will have grain temperature sensing capability and aeration
The Bin B40 project is a grain storage silo adjacent to the East Elevator in Hemingford. The silo will be a concrete jump-form construction and will be filled by existing elevation.
The new bin will have grain temperature sensing capability and aeration, and is intended to expand the co-op’s grain operations and merchandising abilities. It will also decrease the risk associated with piling grain on the ground in temporary storage.
The project is slated for completion by July 1.
