Bulk feed storage is a very economical and efficient method of dispensing and managing your grain inventory. All of the bins are designed to protect your investment from the elements and common insects and pests year round. They have convenient methods of dispensing small and large quantities of grain at a time, Options allow for manual control to fill individual buckets or run large quantities through a motorized auger.

Poly Grain Bins

The poly bins will never fall victim to rust. The larger capacities are made with a single top and bottom section for easy two-piece construction. This means easy assembly and set up as the top half bolts to the bottom for a quick and clean connection.

Below are a few pictures of some of the sizes available:

The bins are made with UV-resistant, translucent, high-density polyethylene. You can quickly and easily see the grain level inside the bin with just a glance. The walls are sturdy and strong 3/16″ thick and their smooth interior helps reduce bridging and allows for free-flowing material to dispense smoothly. There are no rivets or protruding bolts to impede flow when releasing your feed.

A bottom slide valve is available with each bin and allows for manual flow control and shut-off. An auger attachment can be used for unloading large amounts quickly and efficiently. The poly wall design is great for high moisture soybeans, corn, and almost any granular materials.

Metal Grain Bins

The traditional metal feed bins are available in a wide range of capacities. They’ve been the industry standard for years and a common sight throughout the US.

The metal gins are available in capacities of 108 bushels up to 977 bushels. The large sizes create the need for larger diameters that range from 6′, 7′, and 9′ and get up to 25′ tall. See the size chart below for more details.

The corrugated walls are made with G-90 galvanized steel. The 4″ wide corrugation adds tremendous strength (25% more than straight steel) and will help prevent feed bridging inside.

These bins all have a top cap that can be operated from the ground for easy filling. Optional side ladders make climbing to the top convenient if you ever need to access the lid.

Under the taper hopper section, a top collar allows for the attachment of slide valves, poly boots, and un-loader boxes to attach an auger. There are also seam stiffeners that create an extra-strong bolted seam and should be considered as an option for storing high-fat and heavy feeds. They do come standard with the larger 9′ diameter bins.
