Paul H. Hudson, Hudson Poultry Farm
Grain Storage for Expanded Marketing
Grant Award: $6,000
Grain storage is critical for getting the highest price possible as prices fluctuate throughout the year. Right now, Paul must sell straight from the field when his corn, soybeans and wheat are ready and cannot hold grain to sell when prices are at a premium.
With the grant, he added a concrete pad, an elevator, downspout, electrical wiring and grain bins. This addition to the farm will not only increase his income by more than $2/bushel, it will contribute to the long-term sustainability of his farming operation.
