Safety should always be a priority when you are working on the farm. So before you start building a new grain bin, Heartland Power would like to provide assistance in the planning phase to create a safe environment for everyone working and living around the grain bins. When building or moving a grain bin, plan for specific clearances required by the American National Standards Institute and the State of Iowa.

Before moving or building a grain bin, contact Dave Low at Heartland Power at 641-584.2251 or 800.349.2832 to help determine the exact distance your facilities need to be in order to be in compliance.
