The Difference Of Grain Bins and Silos
Grain bins and silos are not synonymous, though few people make a distinction.
When you are looking to buy more storage for your farm, it’s crucial to understand the difference and purchase the right structure for your needs. Grain bins can’t do the work of silos, and silos can’t do the work of grain bins.
The Difference Starts with What They Store:
Grain bins and silos do not store the same products.
Grain bins store dry grain that will be used for animal feed, human consumption, or fuel. This includes, but is not limited to: shelled corn, soybeans, wheat, oats, barley, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds.
Silos store silage–typically something like green grass or chopped corn–which is fairly moist and is fed to livestock. The grasses or corn are more or less “pickled” so that they can keep for a long time and feed the livestock during dry seasons or other times when they have no other food to eat.

Grain Silo Application
Function Determines Silo bin Look
Farm structures are part of the look and feel of every rural area in the world. If you haven’t worked on a farm, you’ve still driven by many and have seen the fields, the farmhouses, the big equipment, and yes, the silos and grain bins.
Grain bins come in varying heights and diameters. Grain bins are metal cylinders with peaked metal roofs. They typically have staircases or ladders on the outside.
Some farmers set up long rows of multiple grain bins which are attached to a series of catwalks that lead from one bin to the next from an elevator.
Their goal is to keep the grain at a specific temperature, but more on that later.
Silos, are also cylindrical but can be made of concrete, concrete blocks, bricks, metal, and sometimes even wood. Their tops are usually dome-shaped and they tend to be narrower and taller than grain bins.
As with the grain bins, sometimes farmers have many of them side by side–though typically silos are all one height in this configuration, and grain bins can be in various shapes and sizes.
