How Much Does a Grain Bin Cost?

A grain bin is a large structure used on the farm to store and move grain, and many people confuse a grain bin with a silo.  A silo is a large structure, usually much taller and skinnier than a grain bin.  The silo, unlike the grain bin, is simply used for storing materials.  Grain can be one of these materials, but a silo can also be used to store coal, cement, wood chips, and sawdust among others.  A grain bin, on the other hand, is used to store and move grain using an elevator system.  This system is comprised of a large bucket that can mechanically scoop up the grain.  The elevator system can also be used to weigh the grain.
