Watch stored grain to prevent little problems from becoming big ones
ST. PAUL -- This spring could be a critical time to monitor stored grain -- especially higher moisture grain.
Some people are worried about possible freezing, thawing and refreezing of grain, resulting in hard-to-handle chunks. But keeping the grain just about the freezing point of water should prevent this from happening. If the grain is below freezing now, running aeration fans when the outdoor air is just above freezing should reduce problems.
