Grain Storage Listings
In response to reports of storage shortages across the state, the University of Missouri Commercial Agriculture Program and University Extension have put together a grain storage listing. The intention is that both farmers with available storage facilities and farmers looking for storage facilities will use the list. Either party could search the listing.
Farmers looking for storage facilities could search for available facilities in the region of Missouri where they have needs. If a satisfactory match occurs it is the responsibility of the farmer to contact the owner of the storage facilities and initiate a rental arrangement. They could also enter a listing describing their need for storage.
Persons with storage can access the listing and search for any farmers who have entered needs for storage. If a satisfactory match occurs it is the responsibility of the storage owner to contact the farmer and initiate a rental arrangement. Storage owners can also enter a listing describing their available storage.
The listings include names, cities, counties, phone numbers and types of grain storage. People can search for available storage, storage requested or both. Storage types include: bin storage with aeration, bin storage without aeration, flat storage with aeration, flat storage without aeration and other. A final area for notes catches information such as "easy access to blacktop", "auger and dryer available for use", "call after 6 p.m."
The listing is intended only to bring together storage facility owners and grain owners. All transactions that occur are the responsibility of the storage owner and farmer. Negotiations on price, dates of storage and conditions of storage such as reimbursement of electric costs, cleaning of bins, etc. are solely between the facility owner and the grain owner.
To list storage you either have available or need:
- enter a new listing via the internet by clicking here
- visit your county extension office and ask them to enter the information for you
If you have any suggestions to improve the service or usefulness of the grain storage listings, please send an e-mail message or call 573-882-4827.
