Grain Handling Solution

The workhorse in modern grain handling applications is the screw conveyor. They are built to ensure dependable power, performance, and longevity in harsh applications and demanding environments where they endure extreme duty cycles. The designs are simple in nature: a mechanism, tube, or shoot that uses a rotating helical screw blade now to move grain.

Segment Analysis

United States Industry Overview

The farm product storage and warehousing industry’s performance depends largely on the performance of the upstream agricultural sector and related international trade. Industry operators generate revenue by transporting, storing, and packing agricultural goods. Farm level decisions on when to store products and how much of that agricultural output to are subject to a wide array of volatile factors. As a result, the industry tends to make large shifts from year to year. Weather patterns affect crop yields and global production and demand drive prices, then storage decisions are made by farmers attempting to sell their goods profitably at market.

Agricultural Price Index

The agricultural price index measures the relative value of agricultural goods in the United States. While there is a wide array of factors that drive farmers’ decision process for storage activity, lower prices tend to increase storage rate. When prices fall, farmers tend to rely on storage to keep products until the price appreciates and they can be profitably sold.

Per Capita Wheat Flour Consumption

Consumer demand for wheat products determines the amount of grain grown in a given year. This factor affects demand for storage facilities and services since wheat is one of the top three most consumed and stored grains in the United States.
