A few months in the making...Today we completed our grain silo project!
A very proud moment - That only a farmer can express! To live and love this life is so very very hard...so many obstacles!! Why did this project take months to complete...weather...always weather...if it’s wet and raining we are frozen till it dries to work on any project...except taking care of animals and milking..we need multiple dry days...first to find “ said” item...to learn all there is to know about them...and believe me there is a lot to know….then pile, spread and level enough gravel...tractor work..and then cement...first build proper form to sit silo..strength and weight included. Gather quotes, explain location, driveway and just the logistics of getting to my farm..what a hassle...SO - Here we are today!
A beautiful 17 foot, 8 ton holder, with slide out, new footings and cover!! GRAIN SILO!!
An amazing sense of responsibility and pride!! To be able to feed our animals the highest quality feed at a better price!
