    That is a fertilizer tower. The fertilizer is loaded from the building on the left into the ‘leg’ to the left of the tower & deposited into bins in the tower. Then an operator loads a mixer from a control panel in the building on the right & they drive a fertilizer spreader etc underneath the tower & the mixed fertilizer drops in & they drivey away to spread it onto a field. Dry fertilizer, not manure. (as it’s portrayed on TV).
