Harvesting has been underway for some weeks now at Sandstone Estates and the surrounding area. The Vrystaat Mielies bunker installation installed at Sandstone Estates nearly 2-years ago is feeling the strain. Trucks are coming in day and night and offloading white and yellow maize. However, due to the calibre of the staff from CMI (Collateral Management International (Pty) Ltd ) who actually manage the silos, things are proceeding smoothly and the maize mountains continue to grow.
Our photos below tell the story:
Truck and trailers arriving at the Weighbridge.
Yellow maize being discharged into the yellow maize bunker.
Trucks offloading on the site using the specialised handling equipment designed to fill the bunkers.
White maize is now starting to come in and this is what the white maize bunker looks like at the commencement of the filling process.
Almost full and ready for covering and if necessary long-term storage.
