Re: How Much Corn Is In Storage? Too Much

Your assumption / statement is wrong from the start.
Very hard to overfill one.

How old, how many cycles?
These 300,000+ bins fail every once in a while.
10 year and older ones were minimum engineered.

They are building one to hold over one million at the new e plant at Atlantic, Iowa

Looks like nice yellow corn in picture to me, shouldn't be much loss, just a lot of trucks going to an e plant.
Probably stay open 24 7 till its cleaned up.

You don't build bins to just half fill them.

Here is a picture that I found of the Miami Valley Feed & Grain Company drive-thru.   You can see part of the grain bin at the right of the picture. Obviously, the building in the picture sustained damage from the bin collapse.

BTW Mike, There wasn't too much corn in the bin..........They just didn't empty it soon enough.  Smiley Wink

Re: How Much Corn Is In Storage? Too Much

Hard to tell from the original picture if it was even full.  the grain sure flattened out so it should be dry and cold so as hobby says --it will find a good home .

 

Thanks for that last picture roaringT,...... it is one of those white flat iron steel bolt togethers..... pretty big....

 

With the road like it is and as close to the road as it was,,,,,, gotta wonder what speed a joyrider might need to pop it open.... probably not that much...if a wayward car tapped into it.

Re: How Much Corn Is In Storage? Too Much

WHIO reported 10,000 tons of corn on the ground?!!?

That works out to over 350,000 bushels.  Bin doesn't look that big.

Air vacs already at work?

 

rt = it looks like there are feedlots south of the elevator. 

Do you know how recently they were used?

The stocks to use is very manageable now. We aren’t close to the stocks to use that we had in 86-87. I think Mother Nature is going to start surprising the grain bears and end users this year, and the next three years. People are far to complacent now.
