I have been picking ear corn for the last 5 years and was thinking of going to shell corn. I was wondering what I would need to store the shell corn--bin, drier?, auger? What would it cost for me to switch? I plan on hiring a custom combine operator. I also could store my oat crop with a bin.

How many acres or bu? Makes a difference on what you can afford.

What do you harvest corn at, 18% or 22% moisture most years? Makes a difference.

What climate do you have, below freezing by the time you harvest, or rarely gets below 50 into the new year?

Then, are you feeding it yourself, or are you hauling it away, and so how long do you need to store it?

I have been planting about 15 acres a year in corn. I would go as high as 50 acres or more if I switch over. I suppose the smallest grain bin available would hold the amount I would have. I live in an area that typically it is freezing on a normal basis by early November. This year is totally a fluke. But anyway I may be taking on a new job which would mean a change in hours and in order to keep farming I would have to make the switch. I would probably store until early spring and then sell to local feed mill. I usually harvest at less than 25% moisture.

for all more you will have let the local elevator store it. Will be cheaper in long run for all more you have. The job change will probably be alot more profitable anyway hopefully or rent it out . Just not enough volume there to build bin for in my eyes. I put them up as sideline until year ago,but if you want something in the 3000-5000bu range you can get them basically free for the removal in my area.

Wrote you a nice long reply last nite, site wouldn't take it. Here's 1/10th the info.

You got LP tank, you got spare 100 amps of power? You need to dry the corn.

50 acres could be 10,000bu corn 'here' if you get it right. Small bins are 1200-4000bu, cheap used but all the money is in the concrete & drying equip.

Batch driers (elect or pto), top bin, floor, low-heat, Shivers - all types of systems. Going to cost.
