Extension software: Fan selection for grain bins

When you're warming grain, condensation will occur just ahead of the warming. If the fan is shut off prematurely, the condensed moisture could freeze. Leaving the fans on until the warming front has passed all the way through the bin can help avoid this problem. Extension's WINFANS software can be used to help estimate airflow and answer other questions.
