Description

S toring grain beyond harvest has been a common practice in the Midwest for many years. Major reasons for doing so include: • Grain prices tend to be higher later in the marketing year than at harvest. Storing grain can help you capture the “carry” in the market. • Flexibility in where and when grain is sold can be maintained. • Harvesting may progress faster if grain does not have to be delivered to an off-farm location directly from the field. • Grain may be used gradually throughout the year for livestock feed.
