E. Woolston, Younglove construction superintendent of the job, is pointing out to J. L. Miller, elevator manager, a portion of the convenient clean-out facilities in the new plant. This aperture leads into one of the massive tanks. A man can enter the near-empty grain lank, and speedily sweep remnants of grain in the lank to a well-placed, outlet, leaving Ihe lank bare and clean. Many such features, will be shown and explained to those who attend the open house Friday. BURT GRAIN-DRYING INSTALLATION Burl Elevator Now Has All Facilities Special aeration equipment, which makes easier and safer the earlier harvest where, it can be achieved, is built into the new plant of the fcurt Co-operative Elevator Co. This equipment drops the temperature standing of new. grain, or any grain f brought in. ' In addition, the Hurt firm has perfected installation of drying and processing machinery at its northern-most building* pictured here at left. Grain, can be brought in in almost any condition — even inier-mixed with ice and snow _ and can be brought to proper moisture content in this plant. This process conditions the grain for storage, or for sale and rr Thing To See At Opening To one who has never before seen the inferior of a giant grain elevator, such as the one at Buri, and especially to those who never have occasion to see the inside of such a plant, the' explanation of various methods by which ' the grain is handled is quite a story. The* Buri elevator is completely equipped with all latest grain handling equipment, which means that "grain service" can be rendered, as well as plain storage. A unique feature at the very lop of the head house — at least to one who has never been that high before in a grain elevator,— is the Roto Flow distributor, commonly called the "Octopus" 'because of its similarity in appearance to an octopus of deep sea waters. 26 spouts radiate from the center of the "Octopus", and these spouts divert grain that is elevated from the ground to any part or bin of the plant. From here, also, grain, can be taken from any part of the elevator and loaded into trucks or railroad box-cars. And through the "Octopus" of 26 radiating pipes is an eye-catcher, there is a lot of other interesting machinery and gadgets up there at the same 12-story height. Any Size Truck Quickly Unloaded In the main entrance way of the new Burt elevator is a traveling horizontal truck lift which unloads trucks or trailers of any capacity. It is electrically operated. Our Hats Are Off to You! We Congratulate the Burt Cooperative Elevator Co. on This Splendid Structure to Serve The Farmers of Our Area.

Ross Manufacturing & Equipment Co, Omaha 4, Nebraska A Salute To One Of The Finest Elevators -to The State Of Iowa The massive structure pictured above, and now a reality in Burt, Iowa, is a splendid example of monolithic concrete construc- tion — in short, one solid mass of concrete, all bound together without seams or joints. It was our privilege to handle the concrete preparation and batching for the building, from a special ready- mix plant which was set up at the job site. It was a pleasure to work with the management of the Burt Co-Operative Elevator Co. on this project — all of whose officers +rtr tr "**•• i»»*Hjr *'f """ and directors we found deeply interested in completing a fine plant. It was also a pleasure to work with the contractor's representatives, all of whom were exceptionally skilled in an erection of this kind. .*' < 1 lit; Finally, we commend the farmers of the Burt area in supporting such an endeavor, one we feel sure will be of great benefit to Kossuth County agriculture, in the years to come.
