Are you wanting to be at the forefront of technology regarding grain storage? Then listen to this.
Grain bagging has become a big hit in the market in the past few years, although Show Me Shortline has been selling Richiger for over 10 years. Grain bagging history can date back to as far as the Egyptians, who used oxygen free storage. There is documented history in Africa, South American and the Middle East that dates back to B.C. times regarding the use of oxygen free storage.
In more recent history, countries like Argentina, where Richiger originates, began using flexible grain storage/ oxygen free grain storage 30-40 years ago because of lack of space to place grain and a growing population. During this time, Richiger company realized that the shortage of grain storage and handling facilities was a major stumbling block for further expansion and that innovative solutions were required.Ӕ At this point they began research and manufactured baggers and unloaders. Then they began using and selling Richiger baggers and unloaders. Currently, 40 million tons of dry grains are being stored in grain bags in Argentina alone.
Richiger baggers and unloaders will be taking another peak due to several factors here in the United States and Canada in the coming years. Global and local demand for food, prices in food, lack of storage and fuel costs as well as concerns for the environment will all be reasons farmers begin bagging more grain now and in the future.
