Title Reinhold Farm - Old Barn with Silo and Milk House
Place Medford, Wisconsin
Date c.
Description When Carl Oscar Reinhold purchased the farm, the large barn consisted of a 50 foot stable, 14 foot thresh-floor and 16 foot storage area for grain and straw.  Hay was stored above the stable where the cows, heifers and calves were kept.  The milk cows and young cattle were kept in the large barn. Around 1925, after living on the farm about five years, Carl Oscar built a wood silo.  Prior to building the silo, no corn was grown on the farm.  Corn was chopped and blown into the silo to make silage, which was used as winter feed for the cattle.
