How To Set Up Your Silos Ready For Cleaning

25 Jul 2020

Hi! It’s Kurt, Walco Seed Cleaning. Seed storage is a big question that always keeps popping up every now and again.

0:14 The why and how you should be doing it, basically, harvest time most people don’t have a lot of time to actually put their grain back in their yards so generally it stays out in the paddock.


0:29 But there’s – before you even start thinking about storing grain you want to pick out the best part of your paddock for seed and I’ll explain that in another video a bit more detail.

0:43 So basically, if you store grain and as you can see behind me, we’ve got two silos there at the moment, but if you got a whole row of silos, then what we can actually do is clean from one silo directly into another one even with the silos all in one line, which saves a lot of headaches, and you guys don’t need to worry about trucks & all that sort of thing.

1:07 So basically, essentially we need to keep the full one on my left shoulder. That’s right there so we can clean into the one on the other side on my right shoulder. That’s the order that we do it and we can basically just start from one end, work our way down, and of course that means as long as we empty the bins out completely. We even clean the bins out as we go, give it a sweep and whole lot more for you.
