Mike,

 

It depends on the temperature which the grains are stored. If it averages from 78ºF to 90ºF it would last fine up to 180 days, according to some Brazilian agronomists.

And moisture... I've seen a lot of bagging of silage, but would think grain has to be in great shape to last 6 months in a bag. And its just waiting for a P-Oed neighbor and a pocket knife!!!

Re: Floor Talk April 11

That's been one of my main concerns with those bags, seems like industry thinks that is the way we need to be proceeding. We've still got issues with cattle rustling and farm site vandalism. Why would anyone want to store something of value in such an unsecured method.

Lots of bags used here. The technology and equipment first came from SA.

I bet after a deer got his reward for rubbing hiS antlers on those bags there would only be one way to stop him. A neighbor with anything bigger than an air rifle. Lots of bad things could make for some bad grain. They say it works because the bagger presses the air out as it loads the bag.
