Otten said the addition was prompted following last year’s harvest. “We had been discussing this for about a year as farmers were just bringing in more. It was getting to be too hard for our customers to get the grain off the fields. There was constant waiting,” said Otten.

The bin, which is 90-feet wide, is about 20-feet in diameter larger in circumference than the bin next to it.
