Iowa State University Extension is offering an intensive one-day course to help farmers optimize and understand their grain drying systems.
The course will be offered this Thursday (February 19) at Pocahontas County Extension and Outreach office from ten a-m to three p-m.
Instructor Kris Kohl, I-S-U Extension Ag Engineer, says the course will use computer calculations for your individual fans and weather conditions to predict drying rates, determine maximum fill depths, and maximum storage life of your corn. Participants will need to bring their laptop or mobile device and detailed information about their grain bin sizes and brand/size of fans.
The cost of the course is 50-dollars per person and is limited to the first six paid registrations. The fee covers lunch and all course materials. For questions or to register call the Pocahontas County Extension Office at (712) 335-3103.
