Forgive us if we sound like a broken record, but somehow it is already September, and all of those we’ll get to in the summer ideas are quickly running out of time. Harvest is here and pretty soon many of our clients will be right in the thick of it. If you haven’t had a chance to get out and evaluate your grain drying, grain storage, and other equipment yet, now is the time to avoid future problems and make sure your grain systems are up to date and running properly.
Grain Systems Pre-Harvest Preventative Maintenance
It’s always a good idea to fire everything up and make sure things will run as expected. It’s also a good idea to address any issues that may have come up last year. Did any of your grain spoil? Did you see any mold or unwanted moisture? Now is the time to squeeze in any last-minute maintenance on your drying systems. Our team is available to inspect any of your drying equipment and make sure that you are set up for an evenly-dried product in the future.
A little upkeep can go a long way, so be sure to clean out your equipment, check for gaps or holes where pests or moisture can come through. If you have had issues keeping grain thoroughly or evenly dry, it may be time to upgrade or expand your drying capabilities. Sometimes a little retrofitting is all you need for your equipment to work like it is brand new again.
While harvest is fast approaching, it is not too late to be prepared.
