Iowa STEEL BUILDING CO. "Quonset Headqbarters" . .",--.:,'. ! '-...•'-•>. • • • • ^ ; ' * * ' • . .. • * For the past five years, Miller Steel Building Co. has > been selling Strati- Steel Quonsets all over Koisuth county and surrounding counties. Its headquarters are in a Quonset building located just nor ( th of the Milwaukee Depot on North Main street in Algona. Operator of the company is Earl B. Miller. , While the Quonset buildings are iosily adapted to either farm or industrial use, Earl Miller has found many farmers enthusiastic about their use as corn and grain storage, V •• *, Mr Miller, announced the Introduction of two new Strah-Steel buildings recently. One, known as a rigid frame structure, can be purchased in clear span widths of 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 feet ana* 20 ftot divisions in length, while the other, the long span, is'SO or 60 feet wide and any multiple'of 16 feet in length. Both are shown above with the original Quonset building. Miller Steel Building Co. has already sold buildings,enough in 1956 to ease the commodity grain storage problem in; this area to the extent of over a million bushels. Owners of these regular Quonset. buildings specially adapted for ear corn drying say they've been getting more and better corn and a greater cash return. They credit this to their use in the five- years of these improved facilities. Extra income earned by these buildings is paying off their cost, owners of these multi-use buildings claim. Since these buildings have a long-life expectancy, extra income from grain storage ''or their use for many other farm jobs will be "clear velvet" to their owners for many years to come. ' "'• The UM of these buildings has not only inceased income' but has speeded up farmer's work, because they can pick earlier and put their corn in at higher moisture content, these farmers owning Quonsets can get their fall plowing done much earlier. • j,* A Quonset building 32 feet wide and 48 feet long, the most popular size, • will store 6,000 bushels of corn. The corn may be safely cribbed at 32 to 35 per cent moisture, since the forced air dryer reduces moisture content to below 20 per cent/which makes it safe from mould. ' • • • ' What about cost and financing? Miller Steel Building »Co. has solved that'" problem with a purchase plan which .has terms as convenient as those now available for tractors and automobiles. A small down payment is all that is needed and a purchaser has up to five year* to complete payment. The Stran-Steel Quonset is today's and tomorrow's answer to the econ- omical and best way of corn and ' grain storage. Let Earl Miller, pie- i tured at left, help you with your •I heeds.
