New grain system FS Construction Services

Project Profile: 4,000 Bushel New Grain System

Here at FS Construction Services, we have worked in the agriculture world for so long that we have settled on that most basic principle of farming certainty: there is no certainty at all. And while it’s true that this has always been the case, there are some things that can be done about it, for example planning a new grain system.


New Grain System for the Future


Many farmers turn to utilizing their grain storage capabilities as a means to weather storms (literally and figuratively), wait for a better market, and deal with unexpected yields without worrying about waste. This was the case with a recent client who asked us to come help them add a little security and convenience to their operation.

After talking with the client about their needs, Nathan Koester and his team built a 7-ring tall, 18’ diameter storage bin with a capacity of 4,000 bushels. While it’s certainly not the largest project we’ve ever worked on, it was done in the interest of foresight and planning. This Brock structure was constructed as a surge tank and also features two 12” fans allowing our client to store their grain longer term if needed. That way, whether the mill is closed for the weekend, or our client needs to hang onto their grain for some other unforeseen reason, they have the capacity to hold the grain and keep it from spoiling in the process.

It’s a simple solution, but one that can pay out dividends in the future. And while it doesn’t control the weather or the market, it does add a little security for when the weather or the market are a little out of control.

If you are in need of adding more grain storage, or if you are in the market for grain drying or grain handling equipment, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know.
