Enter Feed & Grain's 2017 harvest photo contest


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.


The first-place winner will take home a $100 Visa gift card, and the second place winner will receive a $50 Visa gift card. Winners and their photos will be published in Feed & Grain’s January 2018 issue.

To enter your photo, please email [email protected] a high-resolution jpeg, tif or png image that is at least 600 x 600 pixels. Provide your name, company name, location and a brief description of the photo. The deadline for entries is Nov. 25, 2017.
