  5. Hi,

    My father used to be the New England/NY Harvestore erector back in the 60’s. I went to work for him in 1962 at the age of 11 and worked for him every weekend, holiday and summer vacation until I was 16. I probably built 400 of those units. Fond memories.

  6. I recently attended the annual convention of the International Silo Association in Madison, WI. There I met some fellows from the Blue Tower Silo company, which I think is located in or near southern Indiana. They may be able to help answer some of the questions I see on this blog. Their phone number is 765-489-1336
    Good luck!

  7. I have a 20 x 80 forage and 20x 40 grain sturcture. Would love to sell.

    Lawrence, Kansas

  11. I have been demolishing silos for the past 5 years in Indiana and the surrounding 4 states. The metal has some value but it is very difficult to dismantle. We have perfected the process as we have taken over 500 of them down. We are insured to $1 million. My advise is to not let just anyone take them down. You could lose the farm over it. If you have further interest feel free to call me at 765-789-8929.

    • I have a 40 foot harvestore in Wisconsin I am looking to have taken down. Please let me know if this in your range.

    • My father has retired from the dairy business due to health reasons. He has an harvestore silo sitting there, not used for years. Would love to get rid of it. He is in Belleville, KS.
      Would you go there?

  12. Is there any financial gain for removing silos (Harvestors) other than no more insurance or taxes? In other words, what is the cost of removal, or dollar gain of their removal?

  13. My father-in-law has 80 ft and 60 Harvestor silos plus a 27 ft wide/50 ft tall Butler silo for sale. Dismantling/removal. $10,000 for all three.

  14. Correction: My father-in-law has 3 harvestors (80 ft, 60 ft, 50 ft) and one Butler silo (27 x 50).
    Only the three harvestors go for $10,000 – you dismantle, etc. The Butler is negotiable. Located in central Nebraska. 308 293 7299
