Misc./Other Section

Hanson’s bunker panels are used in other bulk storage markets, including seed and composting. Most times for these applications, we can convert an old building on your property into a storage building. This saves you money and brings life and function to a deserted barn or shed.

SEED STORAGE

Hanson’s precast panels are used in numerous bulk storage markets, including seed storage. In the gallery, you’ll find a project we completed for a seed company that utilized an existing building to store bulk Edible Bean seed, but that just one of many applications. Our bunkers are easy enough to set-up on your own, to save you even more money.

COMPOSTING

Our compost bunkers are used for various mammals and livestock:

  • Cattle
  • Poultry
  • Hogs
  • Bi-products
  • Road Kill

BENEFITS OF COMPOSTING

Biosecure
  • Composting allows immediate year-round disposal of carcasses to prevent the spread of disease.
  • There is no entry of off-farm vehicles that can bring disease onto the farm from other operations.
  • High temperatures in the compost pile kill pathogens.
Environmentally Sound
  • A properly functioning compost pile gives off little odor and does not harm or affect groundwater.
  • Composting turns waste into beneficial fertilizer and soil amendment, resulting in on-farm nutrient recycling.
Cost Effective
  • Composting has low to moderate start-up costs and minimal operating costs. Plus, NCRSEQUIP pays up to 75% of project costs. Visit your county NCRS or click here to learn more.
Easy to Accomplish
  • Composting requires only good management and minimal training.
