The Siemer Milling Company recently installed two new grain bins that replaced eight 40-year-old grain bins. The old grain bins were taking down in April. Work was then begun on making a foundation for the new bins. Once that was completed, each bin took 11 days to be assembled and set up.
On July 18, wheat began pouring into each of the new bins. Currently, each grain bin is about half full.
The capacity each grain bin can hold is 560,000 bushels which makes a total capacity for the two bins 1,120,000 bushels. The eight grain bins that were replaced held a total capacity of 640,000 bushels. The new grain bins have increased storage capacity at Siemer Milling by 70 percent.
