27/09/2016: On-Store, an alternative option for temporary storage of grain

On-farm grain storage can be a key component of any farmer’s grain marketing plan, but what if you don’t have enough?

In an article recently published on Ohio Country Journal by Ty Higgins, an alternative method of grain storage was introduced, it might just be what some farms need to leverage what they harvest this fall.

On-Store is a new, fully aerated temporary grain storage system that is offered as a 20,000 or 50,000 bushel system.

“The most important aspect of On-Store systems, with the widening basis and new for immediate storage, is that these can be up and operational in just one day,” said Scott Gladish, On-Store’s national sales director.

“So, you’ve got all that additional storage in a small amount of time and added flexibility with harvest time logistics when there is no need to choose between sitting at the elevator or sitting in a combine.”

The On-Store systems consist of a galvanised steel grain ring, grain vac unloading system ports and an aeration system that is equipped with a five or 10-horsepower fan. “Farmers are utilising these units to hedge against the markets, which have not been friendly as of late,” Mr Gladdish said.

“The markets don’t care if farmers have issues or if their cost of production is higher than what corn pays, but if you are able to increase storage it can allow for better hedging against these lower markets.”
