The height of this early model Harvestore silo, circa 1949, matches the 34 foot height of this traditional wood dairy barn, circa early 20th century. Note the adjoining milk house. Silo height was once determined by the number of cattle to feed, duration of winter or other factions. The height of this 'new' silo seems based instead on aesthetics.
