Enter Feed & Grain's 2017 harvest photo contest

PHOTO CONTEST 2017

With a huge 2017 harvest looming ahead and last year’s crop still in storage, many grain handlers are once again facing serious storage challenges. But if there’s one thing this industry isn’t short on, it’s innovation and resourcefulness.

So, how have you overcome storage issues at your facility? Are you making use of ground piles, grain bags, a temporary structure? Are you relying on a new or unique loading or aeration method to manage excess inventory?

Feed & Grain wants to reward your efforts with our annual harvest photo contest. Send us pictures of your piles, bins, bags or other storage and loading/unloading equipment.
