Vintage - "Silos, Types and Construction" US Dept of Agriculture, 1940

Farmers' Bulletin No. 1820! Nice 62 page, illustrated bulletin describing, "Suffocating gas from fermenting silage, mostly carbon dioxide, forms in all silos shortly after filling begins and continues until fermentation stops. The gas, being heavier than air, collects and remains in any depression or enclosed space when there is not a strong, free movement of air or the air in the silo is no longer agitated.....Gas is a particular hazard for under ground silos."

Great condition! Lots of illustrations!

Item ID: 1629
