2012 ND Soy Pile

I was thinking about this picture I saw last year from ND.  For those that didn't see it, it's worth showing again.

Now THAT's a PILE!

Funny thing about that pile or another just like it the backhoe leaked oil or fuel and they had a hard time getting rid of the contaminated portion.

Apparently, they got a fine by the EPA because there was no oil control for oil coming out of the beans.  The trains didn't arrive on time, and part of the pile went bad.

I didn't know that yu cou;ld drive escavators on top of a soybean pile. You would think they would bottom out and get stuck.

Re: 2012 ND Soy Pile

Yeah - I know - that's one of the reasons the picture is amazing.  I thought it deserved a reprint from last year.  I'm not hearing of any of these kind of piles anywhere in the country - least not yet.
