Your base will be a bit technical, to have a fully vented floor, but probably done in one pour if it's a 6m diameter.This is very interesting. We are having a 700 ton stirring bin put up later this spring, the entire floor is a mesh though, for drying, so I think the groundworks will be simpler.

I'd be interested to see the size of your fan and your airflow volumes for using heated air.

It will be feeding our chicken feed mill and we intend to blend wheat and rye or barley in it. We've added the drying floor and heater because our mobile dryer is 30+ years old so it represents a cost effective way of replacing it whilst we're building a silo for another purpose if you like.
The stirrers will blend it all up, we have a trailer on weigh cells and/or incoming weighbridge tickets to keep a track of amounts? It will also have the effect of regularising protein levels between different varieties or fields of wheat etc.Will the stirrers be doing the blending or do you have a gravimetric/volumetric type feeder to measure each ingredient into the silo?
