The Grain Elevator
The grain elevator is the first stop that crops make after leaving the farm on their journey to an end consumer product. Meyer Brothers Grain in Elk Mound, Wisconsin is a mid-size rural elevator. Crops come in via trucks which are then weighed and sampled. The farmer’s crop will then be unloaded into storage where it will be dried before being shipped at a later date.
