ADVANTAGES OF DRYING GRAIN ON-FARM:

  • Increased flexibility for marketing opportunities
  • Maintain optimum grain quality by managing grain moisture throughout the drying process
  • No long waits or lost time waiting to unload grain at a commercial facility during harvest season
  • Reduces harvest limitations and grain quality issues imposed by weather related conditions
  • Can provide more hours during the harvest season to devote towards post harvest field work
  • Storage available when needed
  • Readily available grain for on-farm livestock operations
  • Return on investment (considerable savings can be achieved on this venture versus drying & storage fees paid annually to a commercial facility)

With proper planning, a drying and storage system can be designed to meet current and future drying and storage needs.

FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A GRAIN DRYING SYSTEM:

  • Power and fuel sources available in your community
  • Site selection and overall layout design of grain drying and storage system
  • Existing equipment or storage facilities on property
  • Harvesting BPH rates and the total volume of grain to store and dry (per day and per season)
  • Available labour vs. automation during harvest season
  • Contamination or quality issues that may need to be addressed
  • Personal experience and preference
  • Safety factors
  • Future plans or expansion
