My first reaction was to feel sorry for whoever has lost their grain (not sure whether the farmers or the silo owners will take the brunt here, although it is presumably insured). The price of wheat skyrocketed in 2012. Bakers were paying €176 a tonne in February, but by October it was €260 a tonne. Interestingly, the price of oats is similar, at €250 a tonne. The reddish colour of this spilt grain tells me it is wheat.
