Grain Drying and Storage Workshops 2013

Workshop 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Grain drying and storage workshops are again being offered this year to serve farmers’ needs. These workshops are for you; if you want a better understanding of grain drying and storage principles, if you are planning a new system, if you are expanding your system, or are considering modifications to your grain handling system. Come and get your questions answered.

Free discussion is encouraged throughout the workshops which results in a good exchange of information among participants. The topics covered in the workshops will include the following:

  • How Grain Dries
  • Types of Drying Systems
  • Dryeration/Cooleration
  • Fan Sizing & Selection
  • Aeration to Keep Grain in Condition
  • Locating Drying & Storage Systems
