GRAIN CLEANERS 

With high quality harvesters grain is often received well cleaned. If in doubt however, it is recommended that fines at least be removed prior to storage.

Cleaning your grain beforehand is the best way to ensure that the grain that you store is as safe as it can be. Pockets of foreign material in your silos can cause hot spots or can cause moisture to creep into your grain, and that spells bad news. Even if you don’t have your own on farm silos, cleaning your grain can be to your advantage when selling your product, as most buyers will subtract 2% from your tonnage as screenings. Screenings you can sell on your own for about R500 per ton as animal feed, R500 per ton that you could be making instead of someone else

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T CLEAN MY GRAIN?

  • Impurities concentrates in the centre of the silo, thereby risking downgrading of your grain’s quality rating when sold.
  • It also hampers drying and aeration as it creates dense pockets.
  • It uses unnecessary storage space you have to pay for.
  • Impurities can contain harmful & poisonous seeds.

Grain cleaning improves the drying & storability of grain. It reduces dockage at time of milling, and improve milling output and quality. Seed cleaning will reduce damage by disease, and improve yields.
