Making a Case For On-farm Grain Storage
For decades, many producers across North America have asked themselves whether to invest in on-farm grain storage or sell and deliver grain as it is harvested.

However, the case for on-farm grain storage is quite logical and can be boiled down to a few key facts that have been demonstrated to Family Farms, LLC year after year. The fact is that producers with adequate grain storage earn significantly higher revenue from grain sales than producers who must sell and deliver most of their grain as it is harvested.
