The scale house is an integral part to any grain handling complex. Trucks delivering corn and soybeans from the farms are weighed here before proceeding on to the elevator. They can also act as a small hub for the community, a place to get information (note the satellite dish on the roof) and a free cup of coffee. The jet contrail in the sky above is also ubiquitous with the prairie. You may have flown over this place and hardly noticed!
Part of a series of woodcuts exploring the industrial landscape on the prairie.
