Racks help bundle tires

organized barn clothes

Tires that cover bunker silos at Hillcrest Dairy are more organized after creating a number of iron "tire racks." As tires come off the bunker to expose feed, the tires are stacked on the rack. Once a rack is full of tires, the group is banded together and stored such that a pallet fork can pick up two stacks at a time when the next bunker needs to be covered.
