Bagging Tips and Advantages

  • Grain Bins and elevators can fill up quickly during harvest leaving operators with limited options. One option is to pile grain on the ground which often leads to substantial and costly losses, while grain stored in bags designed and developed specifically to store dry grain, gives operators flexibility and peace of mind.
  • As long as bags are placed on clean ground with good water drainage, they can be placed in any number of convenient locations.
  • Grain bags come in many sizes, 10ft x 250ft, 10ft x 300ft, 10ft x 500ft and 12 x 500ft and can store a number of commodities including wheat, corn, flowers, beans, oats and silage.
  • When properly managed, commodities stored in bags can be kept for up to 2 years giving farmers the flexibility to haul to the elevator when time permits.
  • As yields increase with ever changing technology, bagging your crop allows the farmer to react quicker than building more bin storage. Bagging is the farmers lowest short term storage option with costs generally between 5 to 7 cents/bushel.
  • Building permanent storage bins on rented land is cost prohibitive and risky.
  • Setup time for a bag is approximately 30 minutes.
  • Because you don’t have to wait on trucks, more often than not, the added flexibility allows farmers to downsize their fleet.
  • Loading into a bagger from a grain cart is usually accomplished in less then 3 minutes while extracting from a bag into a semi usually takes less than 5 minutes.
  • A number of improvements have been made to bagging equipment in the past 3 years including reinforcing certain areas with heavier steel and adding time and labor saving controls.

A Bit About Us

Antelope Farms was established by Craig’s great grandfather in 1905. A farmer from Minnesota who fell in love with the prairie, he purchased a section in Stark County near Richardton where both Craig’s grandfather and father farmed before him. Craig took over the operation when his father retired 25 years ago and has transformed the farm into the success it is today. With this same drive and vision, Craig started Antelope Farm and Ranch Supply in 2011 and quickly grew  the business into the Upper Midwest’s premier commodity handling equipment sales and service provider.
