Grain Storage

Storing grain is an important part of any grain farmer's operation. Without the proper means to store your grain, it could become moldy or infested with insects, eliminating any profit you may have made. That is why it is vital for you to make sure that you have a safe and dry place to store your grain, as well as an efficient way to transport it. Quad County Ag, LLC. helps to provide farmers in Iowa with grain storage systems that will protect their crops from the harsh weather and temperatures of the outside world.

iowa grain storageThere are many issues that can occur with your grain storage system. Some common issues that you might see include:

  • Increased moisture content: Signs of a moisture content that is higher than desired in your grain include wet or slimy grain, buildup of ice or frost on the grain, and condensation on surfaces in the grain bin.
  • Ineffective temperature control: If the temperature in your grain bin is not being adequately moderated, it will prevent the grain from retaining the proper moisture level. If the aeration system in your grain storage bin does not work properly, it may cause the grain to spoil.
  • Crusted grain surface: This problem occurs when the moisture content is too high and the temperature has not been properly regulated. These issues cause spoilage and crusting. This issue must be fixed with proper aeration.
  • Sanitation issues: If the grain bin is not kept clean, or if there is an excess in moisture, it could result in sanitation issues such as mold formation or insect/pest infestation.

Quad County Ag can supply you with grain storage systems that will prevent these issues from occurring. If you are in need of an additional grain bin, or wish to replace any of the old grain bins on your farm, contact us as soon as possible.
