Grain silos

Grain silos

Grain is being transferred from a bulk truck to a grain silo. The truck is tipping the grain into an auger, which is driven by the tractor’s power. In good conditions grain can be stored in a silo for several years. When the grain is needed it is removed through a chute in the bottom of the silo and augered into bulk trucks.
