Wow, that is some serious moisture. I condition the grain with a spray bottle as I am dumping it from scale to bucket. I just spray the grain as it falls in. I always let it sit at least 20 minutes before milling after all that spraying as well. It does make my grain bed seem "fluffier".
We live and learn right? At the very least it is a wild photo. How much grain were you milling there?
This is basically what some brewers do at the pro level. They run the grain through the auger, and into the MLT. At the end of the auger, they attach a collar that is hooked up to an off shoot of the water inlet to the mash tun so that the grain is hydrated as it enters the tun. Good for cutting down on dust and preventing dough balls ... possibly a few other things.
At our level, I don't worry about it. I just add the grain slowly and stir a lot.
