Recycling old tile or brick barns

I purchased a property that was a dairy farm starting back in 1938. It has multiple old barns on the property, most of which are in very poor condition and need to be taken down.

The barns are all tile/brick with wood rafters and tin roof.

The main dairy barn has two large silos attached to it that are in relatively good conditon. Seems like there are a lot of barn salvage/demo/reclamation companies that deal with all wood structures.

Anyone have experience with old tile/brick barns?

I am interested to know the value if we sold/recycled the barns.
