Another vintage red wooden barn located within a few miles of our farm.
I always love to see the metal roofs -- they are the best addition a farmer can make to his barn(s), as it helps to maintain the underlying structure for many years.
The blue silo, manufactured by the A.O. Smith Company, is not your typical silo in Nebraska.
According to busn.uco.edu,
In the late 1940s a new, revolutionary silo began appearing. The A.O. Smith Company of Milwaukee, manufacturer of glass-lined water heaters and beer vats, began making steel, glass-lined silos--Harvestores, the company called them. This first glass-lined silo was, in reality, a beer storage vat stood on end. Although they were considerably more expensive than the popular concrete stave silos, the blue silos began dotting the upper Midwest, especially Wisconsin.
