Farmers are actual real life geniuses. They can feed themselves and fix anything. Serious respect.
First of all, if you need to put together a grain bin, I recommend calling Danny. The man is a genius.
His email is: dannylef2 at yah00 d0t c0m
(I've typed his email address like that so webcrawlers won't detect it and spam him. If you're a farmer you're smart enough to figure that out.)

    • @Mark Anthony Williams 5:38 -- Now imagine an interior, insulated skin, where the inside of that R30 skin is something like 1/4" birch plywood. Fill in with rooms as required, or just enjoy a huge open space with one enclosure. Or... a structurally independent stack of rooms, 3 rooms high. Keep the opening at the top a glazed oculus. The possibilities are many. (And figure out how to attach R45 ceiling insulation and incorporate an ERV into the whole. You get the idea, I'm sure.)

    • @Abner Santos By the time election day rolled around you already knew he was a liar. You allowed yourself to be fooled, hoping for something better. The people in 1930's Germany did the same thing. How did that work out?

  • “I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn.” -Michael Bloomberg 2020 Presidential candidate.

  • "Farmers are the smartest people out there." Yes they have to be competent, but the smartest people are exactly where you'd expect them to be: in research and teaching positions. Farmers have to be competent at all of those things because if they were good enough at any one of those things, they could make an easier living just doing that one thing.

Kudos to you, for causing someone who is 31 years of age to want to just sit, relax, and learn today.

  • I've always heard one of the greatest dangers of bins is the risk of an actual explosion of the suspended airborne particles when exposed to an ignition source. Don't know whether it's limited to fine powders of perhaps a flour bin or whether it extends to structures designed to keep whole grain wheat, corn or soy bean type materials.

  • They may be ingenious, but their a pain. I worked on a farm and because of the way they’re filled and emptied, it forms a crater in the middle. So I had to go in and use a shovel to flatten the whole thing, not fun.
