Round Bale Grain Storage
His round bale feed bunker is located next to his feedlot. He sets up two rows of round bales tight against each other and about 20 ft. apart, and then drives his combine alongside and dumps 18 to 20 percent moisture shelled corn between the bales. A loader tractor scoops the corn into a wagon, as needed.
"It's a good way to get rid of high moisture corn without having to dry it," says Gogerty. "We store about 1,500 bu. between the bales. The corn keeps for quite a while, because the weather is colder by the end of the harvest season. Usually we get all the corn fed out within a few weeks, before it can spoil."
