What Is Grain Silo

DATE : Oct 31st, 2023

A grain silo is a structure created to store materials in bulk. They are usually tall and cylindrical, but can also be constructed in the form of warehouses, domes, or large elongated bags. They mainly store grain, seed, or silage, fodder that is harvested green and then stored and left to ferment. This fodder is then used to feed livestock or as a biofuel, and is usually grass, alfalfa, sorghum, oats, or maize.

The three primary types of grain silos are bag silos, bunker silos, and metal silos. Bag silos are an inexpensive way to store grain and silage, and they are made out of a heavy, durable plastic, usually 6 to 8 feet (2 to 2.5 meters) in diameter, and can be of any length. They are often used for overflows, when more storage space for grain is necessary. The bunker silo is rotgh, not sealed for the grain storage. Metal silo is selected by most people in modern society for it’s outstanding features: no leakage, low cost, easy to load and unload material, etc.
