Harvest 2016 has been happening around the country, mainly corn in the Midwest, and has been made easier with Richiger grain baggers due to lack of storage. I have seen first-hand in the past few weeks, how bagging your grain with a reliable and high capacity bagger like the Richiger baggers can streamline the process of harvest. The Show Me Shortline team has helped many first time Richiger bagger customers bag their first bags this season, and once a customer feels confident in the process, its changing the way they farm. We have been selling and bagging grain ourselves for 10 years. We unload a 1100 bushels grain cart in less than 3 minutes, then the cart is free to move on and the combines keep running. Customer have been amazed how fast the baggers can bag the grain. On say a 10-250 bag, you can expect to unload your grain cart 10-13 times to fill just one bag. Our plastar bags hold approx.40 bushels per foot for 9 ft bags, and approx. 50 bushels per foot for 10 ft bags.
Since storage is low this season with our bumper crop, farmers are looking for other ways to store their grain. Erecting more grain bins is expensive, a fixed place that cannot be moved, and they are not easy to sell if you decide you don’t need them anymore. Richiger grain baggers are an easy solution to all three of these obstacles that grain bins have. Richiger baggers are reasonably priced, the Farm Bureau recently told us this season that they are offering low interest loans to farmers who want to purchase flexible grain storage units like Richiger bagging systems. You can expect to pay about 0.7 cents a bushel for the grain bags themselves. Also baggers can be sold when they are not needed anymore and they can be moved anywhere you need the mon the farm so you can bag right in the field. Grain bins also have property tax and fans running which uses electricity, you don’t need any of that with a grain bag.
Farmers feel confident that bagging grain with Richiger baggers is right for them and that the investment was a good one, we have been talking to customers locally here in Mid-Missouri as well as up north into the Dakotas, Kansas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Nebraska, Texas, all over the country people are bagging grain with Richiger baggers and we are selling out fast from baggers and bags alike, so visit http://bagyourgrain.com/dealers/find_a_dealer.php to find a dealer near you and get your bagger before it’s too late in the season.
