03/31/2017 – Kansas City, MO – CST Industries, Inc., the world’s largest and leading tank and dome manufacturer announces the new Breather Bag for Harvestore® Systems. Made in America, the iconic Harvestore has been around since the mid-1940s with structures 60 years old still in service today. Harvestore’s Breather Bag is a Harvestore Blueprint Part, and a special feature designed into a Harvestore System to help reduce the amount of air that can get into the structure.

The new Harvestore Breather Bag is constructed from a fiber-reinforced polyvinyl chloride for extra strength and durability and no loss of tensile strength after exposure to silage juice. While all feed storage systems allow air to come into contact with feed, proper operation of a Harvestore System can minimize the amount of air contacting feed during storage. A Harvestore System’s oxygen-limiting capability promotes quality feed. An integral part of this system is the Breather Bag.

“Harvestore’s new Breather Bag is a result of CST’s commitment to an ongoing product development and improvement program. CST has further developed this special system to help minimize dry matter loss and contribute to a beneficial preservation of feed quality,” says Greg Hentschel, VP of Engineering at CST Industries Inc.“ New Harvestore structures are better than ever and have been proven to be the best storage system to preserve forage quality.”

“This advanced design is a result of CST’s continued commitment to innovation in our products to provide our customers with the greatest solutions,” said Tim Carpenter, President & CEO of CST Industries, Inc.“There is no equivalent accessory capable of performing this function in a bag or bunker; Harvestore’s Breather Bag is the leading solution outperforming any competing technology in the agricultural storage market. We have been manufacturing Harvestore Systems for over 70 years, and we’re proud to be the leading pioneer, offering premium products to our valued customers.” CST continues to invest in the highest level of R & D for ongoing product improvement.

CST’s customer commitment remains to provide the best quality product available in the market today for agricultural storage solutions. For more information on the new Harvestore Breather Bag, visit us at www.cstindustries.com.
