UNIVERSITY PARK -
Equipment and techniques needed
by American farmers to produce
food in the 1980’s will be displayed
at Penn State’s Ag Progress Days
August 25 to 27, according to
Samuel H. Smith, Dean of the
College of Agriculture
The show, recognized as the
largest outdoor educational event
for agriculture in the East, will
take place at the Rock Springs
Agricultural Research Center,
along Route 45, nine miles west of
State College.
“The modern equipment that
you will see, the cultural practices
demonstrated, and the research
reflected at Rock Springs are all
forerunners of commercial food
production in the years ahead,”
Smith stated.
The theme of the three-day show
this year is "Agriculture—Depend
On It!” The program, as in the
past, is sponsored by Penn State’s
College of Agriculture in
cooperation with many statewide

E'S HOW IT WORKS...
As wet grain enters the top of the bin, it
flows into the upper drying chamber as har
vested with no need for a wet holding bin
This upper chamber holds up to 4 feet of wet
grain (2250 bushels)
Every seven minutes a continuous flow
auger makes a complete revolution around the
upper drying floor drawing the dried grain into
the lower cooling area
Hot air is introduced under the upper floor to
dry the wet gram and to heat the surface of the
grain that is distributed into the lower cooling
chamber The air that is used for cooling the
grain picks up heat during the cooling process
This heated air is then used again in the drying
process saving on fuel costs
When not being used for drying the bin will
store 8500 bushels of grain
