Having been in the Hog and Poultry industry for 30 years, we have seen first-hand the advantages that polyethylene feed bins and tanks have over traditional corrugated steel bins. Metal bins are no longer the only option available to growers and with the move towards increasing DDGs feeds in feed rations, Polyethylene Bins are a better investment.
To quantify the effectiveness of polyethylene bins and tanks, we have recently submitted our poly bins for testing at the University of Minnesota. Testing will begin shortly to determine the flowability of DDGs feeds in both polybins and the traditional steel bins. We are confident that our poly bins with out-perform the steel bins. The interior of our poly feed bins allows for easy and even flow, even for the most highly concentrated feeds.
We look forward to the final findings of the testing.
