Cribs are part storage part dehydrator. As picked it will go into a crib at around 24%-26% moisture and will air dry down to 16-19%. That's just averages it could go in much drier to start! They are not used much any more although I'd gladly have one to store my sheep feed in. Sheet metal on the bottom was supposed to keep rats out but rarely worked well. With some thought to design and maitenance it was OK. The corn could have been used for human consumption too, but mostly it was for animal feed either shelled and cracked or ground cob and all.
