For Farm Progress Show 2019 We’re going to have basically our full product offering for the producers in our grain systems. So we’re going to start with our 60-foot diameter, 140,000 bushel bin. We’re going to feed that with a 70-foot York leg and Brownie tower with a catwalk coming across with a convey to fill it. We’ll have our easy-dry, 30-foot in-bin drying system. And then we’ll also be showcasing a five thousand bushel hopper bottom, 18-foot diameter. Coming from that we also offer a full line of storage buildings. We’re going to have a 50 by 60, 16 foot tall roof, or 16 foot high wall Sentinel building, from here in the center of the booth here. And where we are currently standing, we’re going to have a NECO dryer. A mix-flow dryer, it will be about a thousand bushels per hour.
