Wheat Storage Buildings: Concrete & Steel Advantage!
Our Wheat Storage Buildings are constructed of concrete and steel, have in floor aeration and are covered with fabric fiber. Fabric covered wheat storage has many benefits and our storage buildings are perfect for grains: corn, wheat and soybeans. Bucklin Buildings are very competitive and are built to be the strongest available.
Bucklin Buildings is your Midwest Wheat Storage builder.
The following information by William F. Wilcke & Kenneth J. Hellevang discusses using aeration to cool wheat. At Bucklin Buildings, we provide in floor aeration in our flat storage buildings.
Wheat Storage Recommendations - Using Aeration to Cool Wheat & Grains
Keeping grain cool reduces mold and insect activity. Activity slows at temperatures below 60 degrees F and almost ceases below 40 degrees F. Because daytime temperatures are usually greater than 60 degrees F in late summer and early fall, it might be necessary to operate fans at night to start the cooling process. Don't worry too much about high nighttime relative humidity—grain rewetting is unlikely to be a problem.Another reason for aerating grain is to keep its temperature within about 20 degrees F of the average outdoor temperature to prevent moisture migration. If warm grain is stored into cold weather, natural moisture movement from warm grain to cold results in rewetting and spoilage of grain at the top of the bin. The recommended winter grain storage temperature in northern Minnesota is about 25 degrees F. Watch forecasts for 20 to 30 degrees F weather and operate aeration fans 24 hours/day in late fall to cool grain for winter storage.

In addition to wheat storage our flat storage buildings can be used for a variety of agricultural storage, serving South Dakota and the Midwest States.
Our flat storage buildings are the perfect storage solution for Agricultural Storage.
