Farm Grain Bin Plans
Ready; Material Big ?
With available elevator and ware
house storage in Oregon far below
the requirement for this year's
grain crop, hundreds of farm stor
age facilities are going to be needed
to get the wheat crop under cover
before next winter. In preparation
for the expected building of farm
storage bins of wood, the agricul
tural engineering department of the
0. S. C. experiment station has re
viewed available plans and specifi
cations of various sizes and types
and has issued recommendations on
those found suited for Oregon con
ditions. Plans and specifications for these
are available through any county
extension office at prices covering
merely the cost of materials. Gran
ary plans are for sizes varying from
500 to 6400 bushel capacity, and in
clude some combination silos and
grain bins. How the lumber freez
ing order will effect this program
remains to be seen.
The college department has also
given its approval to a recent publi
cation of the West Coast Lumber
men's association, which includes
plans and specifications for wood
grain storage bins built of Douglas
fir. Most of those included are U.S.
D.A. plans or adaptations of them
for construction with western lum
ber. Copies of this pamphlet may
be had through any lumber yard
or direct from W.C.L. Asso., in Eugene.
