Tallest and largest silos in USA

It is a bit estonishing, that world's tallest silos are not in the USA (although it is world's largest cultivator of grain), but in Germany!
These are:

Henninger Turm, Frankfurt, Germany ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0011033 )

Schapfenmill Silo, Ulm, Germany ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0020013 )

What are the tallest and largest silos in USA? Where are they, how tall are they and what is there storage volume?

I believe Buffalo New York had the largest grain terminals on earth built during the first world war. I believe most of the facility has since been torn down

Now the largest facility in North America I believe is in Thunder Bay Ontario.

Largest in terms of volume, but not tallest.
