Question for Farmers

Feed is grain. I've build them when I was a teenager and these where used for corn and ground feed for pigs.

Larger ones where generally used for wheat or oats for resale.

Could it be used for silage though?

Silage is storage, not necessarily of the grain itself but the bulk of the plant (Stalks, chaff, leaf, etc).  Further, silage products are not necessarily dry products - they contain moisture which will naturally ferment.  Without proper ventilation, silage can, and will, build explosive gasses.  Storage silos are not just ventilated, they are cooled to prevent spontaneous combustion resulting from natural heat production.  Storage silos are built tighter than distribution silos.  distribution silos are smaller silos and are very active - therefore there are less problems with disasters, yet, they must be ventilated for periods of rest.
