There are several reasons why farmers should consider hiring a professional grain salvage company instead of removing damaged grain on their own.
Firstly, a salvaged grain company like Pruess Elevator can often provide a more efficient and cost-effective service than doing it yourself. We have the right equipment and expertise to quickly and safely remove damaged grain, which can help to minimize losses and reduce downtime on the farm. In addition, a salvaged grain company often offers better prices for salvaged grain than farmers might be able to get on their own. This is because we have established relationships with buyers and know how to maximize the value of damaged grain through proper cleaning and processing.
Another important advantage of hiring a professional grain salvage company is that we can help to minimize the risk of injury or accident during the salvage process. Bridged and moldy grains are dangerous to work around and a labor-intensive task. Inexperienced farmers may not have the necessary safety training or equipment to do it safely. Removing large volumes of damaged grain can be a dangerous and labor-intensive task, and inexperienced farmers may not have the necessary experience or equipment to do it safely.
Overall, there are many compelling reasons why farmers should consider hiring Pruess Elevator instead of taking on the task themselves. From financial benefits to improved safety and efficiency, working with a reputable grain company can help to maximize profits and minimize risk.

How long does it typically take for a professional salvaged grain company to remove damaged grain from a farm?
The time it takes for a professional salvaged grain company to remove damaged grain from a farm can vary depending on the specific circumstances. Factors such as the number of bushels to be extracted, the structure the grain is in, how badly damaged the grain is, and weather conditions affect the speed of operation. The higher amount of damage to the grain affects the flowability. If the grain is bridged, special methods are a must to remove the grain safely. Typically, it can take anywhere from a day to a couple of weeks to complete the salvage process.

The cost and timeline of a grain salvage operation can be impacted by several factors, including the extent of the damage and the presence of harmful substances. Generally speaking, the more heavily damaged the grain is, the more labor-intensive and time-consuming it will be to clean and extract it. Similarly, if harmful substances like mold or bacteria are present, additional precautions may need to be taken to ensure safety, which can add to the overall cost and timeline of the operation. Additionally, weather conditions, equipment availability, and personnel resources can also impact the overall cost and timeline of the operation. Ultimately, the cost and timeline of a grain salvage operation will depend on a variety of factors specific to each situation.
