Article: Grain Moisture and Preventing Engulfments

Today I’m sharing an article on preventing grain bin engulfments by Successful Farming and an article about managing grain moisture from the University of Arkansas.  One factor that is sometimes forgotten in preventing grain bin engulfments is the condition of the grain when it goes into the bin.  Making sure that the moisture content is low enough helps prevent crusting and buildup that can cause engulfment. Less moisture also means less time is spent dealing with crusts, buildup, and equipment clogs, plus saves money by reducing or eliminating need for drying. This is definitely a case where the connection between injury prevention and maximizing profit are closely linked.

Here is a link to the engulfment prevention article.
