British usage is silo.

They are in my experience, I live in a rural area, found on individual farms rather than in any facility. Farms will tend to store grain themselves. 

Farming around here, certainly arable, is on an industrial scale. I imagine these are associated with  co-operatives and relatively small farms.

But to be sure next time I have a pint with a farmer I will ask the question.
