Storage for supplements

Postby Hunter » Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:09 am

What do or have you used to store your supplements?
I am looking to start feeding some supplements, i.e. DDG, but don't have a place to store it and looking for some ideas.

When they deliver, say between 1-3 tons, do they drop on the ground or can they dump into a bin?

Thanks in advance.

Chicken house bins look like a good buy to store a few tons. If there's any in your area.

I used to get wet brewers grain and they bagged it on site right off the truck....
have never used DDG....
most of the dairies around here have a high commodity shed with several bins and a concrete floor...

Sugar sacks or Super sacks work really good. They used to be about $20 and last for several years. Hold about a ton and can be lifted by the handles to move them.
