CGC Field Trip EQUIPMENT

Hands-On EQUIPMENT FIELD TRIP 12:00 – 3:00 pm at Scatter Creek Farm (8941 James Road SW, Rochester, WA)

You can grow a lot of grain in a hurry, but what about post-harvest handling and getting it to market before it spoils or is soiled by pests? We’ll meet at the Scatter Creek Farm and Conservancy in Rochester, WA to see and learn about the full battery of equipment needed for grain post-harvest handling and processing. How should I transport a few bags to dozens of tons? Traditional augers or bucket augers and why? What do I need to know about grain moisture, storage, and possible rancidity and mycotoxins? What is an immediate storage system, and what should I plan for long-term? Can I, and if so how do I mix a quality on-farm poultry or hog ration from my own or local grain? We’ll answer these questions and more by hearing from a group of experienced grain producers and extension educators as we sequentially look at post-harvest handling from the field to grain wagon, cleaner, transfer bins, augers, storage vessels, and the one-ton tote, granary or 50-pound sack for sale. Most of our time will be spent in discussion around equipment, followed by auger, cleaning and mixing demonstrations. Event fee also includes a meal catered by Tamale Fusion, with hot beverages. Hand warmers, outdoor heaters and covered space provided. Most of the equipment walk and talk will be under cover, but not some of the bigger pieces!

Cost: $40 includes a light lunch REGISTER

equipment-description          All this talk about growing grain? Let’s get on the farm and learn about the equipment needed to do just that! We’ll meet at the Scatter Creek Farm and Conservancy in Rochester, WA to see and learn about the full battery of equipment needed for a viable grain enterprise. How much does it cost? What questions should I ask before buying used? What are the pros and cons of different combine models and sizes? How much can each combine harvest in a day? What threshing and cleaning equipment is available and recommended?

     We’ll answer these questions and more by hearing from a group of experienced grain producers as we sequentially look at grain production equipment from primary tillage on through seeding, cultivation, harvest, cleaning and milling. Most of our time will be spent in discussion around production equipment, followed by threshing and seed cleaning demonstrations. Event fee also includes a meal catered by Tamale Fusion, with hot beverages. Hand warmers, outdoor heaters and covered space provided.
