Description: The ensiling of high moisture grains for use as on-farm feed continues to increase for several reasons, one of the more important being the high energy costs of artificial drying. Published information on the design-loads appropriate for high moisture grain storage structures is scanty. The authors know of some designers who use greater loads than those assumed for whole-plant corn silage and others who use identical designs for whole-plant silage and high moisture corn. Standards for the structural design of tower farm silos in Canada are published in the Canadian Farm Building Code (CFBC) (1977). In the United States, farm silo design is governed mainly by the International Silo Association (ISA) Standards for concrete stave silos (1974) and monolithic poured-in-place silos (1978). These codes and standards deal primarily with the storage of whole-plant silages. There appears to be a lack of guidance for other materials. The CFBC (1977) states that
