The following information is a Web Extra from the pages of Farm Journal. It corresponds with the article "A Smooth Harvest” by Darrell Smith. You can find the article in on page 42 in the September 2010 issue.
Here’s one more tip from Jack Trainor of Trainor Grain in Forrest, Ill.—and it may be the most important one of all. Poor-quality grain is more likely to lead to plugged augers, bridged grain and accidents. “Too many people are dying from poor-quality corn,” says Trainor.
Of course, grain-bin accidents happen with good grain, too. Whether harvest season is early or late, whether quality is good or bad, take your time, be careful and stay safe around bins this fall.
