English term or phrase: corn crib
A corn crib is what Midwestern farmers use to dry dent corn (on the cob) for fodder. It looks like a large round cage, approximately four yards in diameter and two storeys high, with a conical tin roof and a padlocked gate, which serves to release the dried corn cobs. It is certainly not the same thing as a silo.

Thanks for the web site reference.

"Troje" is what I was looking for.

"Hórreo" doesn't work anywhere in Spain except Asturias, as it is a rectagular wooden structure built atop heavy logs to keep it off the ground. I am familiar with this word and what it means.

Thanks, everyone.

granero (de maiz)


Explanation:
crib : (esp. para maiz ->> accent ! this system does not allow them)is called un granero.
A more complete answer taking into account crib as a verb would be :
granero (de almacenamiento) de maiz.
Otra opcion : establo (but it is usually used for cattle)
Note : maiz if US corn. If GB corn, then trigo. Ire/Scot corn translates as avena. General names : grano o cereal (instead of corn).
corncrib (one word) : horreo (again, accent on first o) o granero para almacenar maiz.
Good luck !
