Grain

“In the early 1990’s, Lime Ridge Ag added two small bins to accommodate the growing needs of corn and oats storage. In the initial investment, we incorporated drying capabilities in the corn storage bin. Need for additional storage continued to drive the erection of new bins and in the early 2000’s, we added higher capacity continuous-flow drying. And a few years later with the talk of ethanol plants in Reedsburg and Arena, we erected the last storage bin. We now stand at a total of a little over 300,000 bushels of storage. Then in 2012 we positioned a 70 foot scale and scale house next to our unloading area to simplify our wet-corn unloading. A software system was also purchased to improve scale and grading efficiency. We are a state licensed “Grain Warehouse Keeper” and “Grain Dealer”. We can provide grain marketing during the harvest season and some marketing during the off season.

Our specialty though is grain stored for eventual processing for livestock. Unlike many operations in the area, Lime Ridge Ag still maintains the hammermill for ultra-fine corn processing. After countless times of improved milk flow by using fine ground instead of fine rolled corn, we sent the two processed samples out for analysis. Corn rolled to 700 micron (industry recommendations) had about 7500 particles per gram of sample. The ground corn had over 45,000 particles per gram. This allows for much more rumen VFA production and quick results in the milk tank! The roller mill however does a precision job of processing for our swine customers. The less fines here, the less issues with gut health.

Stop by and talk with us or give us a call for any of your grain needs. We also provide the same services for stored oats and soybeans!”
