    That’s an odd looking grain “bin.” Glad no one injured. Will look for the update.

      I know, I’m not a farmer, I don’t know what to call it.

      Thanks for the info. I knew it wasn’t a “bin”, just couldn’t find a better word.

    I wonder if the structure they were using is designed to store grain.

    A structure that was not built to properly store grain! It didn’t even have a liner on the inside so all the pressure was pushing out on the outside metal. Another federally funded project gone bad!

    Its just like anything else, use something long enough its gonna break! Id bet they’ve used that structure for yrs. No ones fault shit happens all we can do is help and learn from our mistakes as well as others. Just one opinion from the next. Stay safe!
