The value of corn grown for livestock feed and silage was nearly $ million in , moving field corn into the top 10 list of the state's most valuable crops. The figure does not include sweet.   In both spreadsheets the farmer will enter data such as corn price per bushel, silage yield per acre or estimated grain yield, percent of corn silage dry matter, harvest/hauling/storage cost and the estimated amount of shrinkage during storage. Results appear as cost of corn silage value per ton and the final cost of silage to producer.

USDA has estimated annual production costs and returns and published accounts for major field crop and livestock enterprises since Cost and return estimates are reported for the United States and major production regions for corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, grain sorghum, rice, peanuts, oats, barley, milk, hogs, and cow-calf.

These cost and return accounts are "historical" accounts based. The estimated costs of production per bushel for corn following soybeans are $, $ and $, assumingand bushels per acre, respectively.

Cost-of-production estimates, per bushel, for herbicide-tolerant soybeans are $, $ and $, assum Author: Rod Swoboda.

The “Maize Silage- Costing and gross margin calculator” is an interactive Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet that will allow producers to enter their own data Estimated production costs for corn silage in southwestern Washington book calculate the cost of growing maize silage. The calculator can also be used to estimate the total cost of maize silage for the total area grown.

Corn is the most widely produced feed grain in the United States (U.S.), accounting for more than 95 percent of total production and use. The other three major feed grains are sorghum, barley, and oats. Most of the corn crop provides the main energy ingredient in livestock feed.

Corn is also processed into a wide range of food and industrial. by breaking all the corn kernels and reducing the presence of large cob pieces. ** In CA, % of the dairy producers do not kernel process because of harvest costs (Collar and Silva-del-Rio, ) Processing corn silage increases milk production up to to lbs/cow/d when corn silage represents 30 to 40% of the Size: 3MB.

• Total forages: USDA estimated total forage production (all dry hay, haylage and green chop) in 17 major states at million tons, down less than 1 percent from a year earlier. U.S. corn silage production was estimated at million tons on million acres, both down 1 percent from Average yields topped 20 tons per acre for a.

From a livestock nutrient point of view, corn silage may be worth more in the ration than is reflected in the market.

These calculated corn silage values are not necessarily the cost of production, or the feed nutrient. The total of these costs was increased by one-fifth to allow for an estimated one-sixth loss in weight caused by fermentation and drying.

Pearson and Gaines proposed two methods of estimating the money value of corn silage. 2 Their cost-accounting method was based on a summary of detailed cost accounts on 68 farms during the years to Cost for Pioneer ® brand 11C33 is based on inoculating a 22 tDM/ha crop. Farmers growing Pioneer ® brand maize for silage for sale are usually responsible for costs up to and including the nitrogen sidedressing application.

Maize silage cost per MJME assumes a maize silage. Corn Silage Production, Management, and Feeding by G. Roth The purpose of this publication is to provide the most recent information on cost effective, safe, and environmentally sound ways to produce and use high quality corn silage.

Also available: Alfalfa Management Guide - ISBN Cited by: Silage yields were reported as being higher than average although corn silage was put up slightly later than normal.

A lot of crops were diverted towards greenfeed to help make up for the forage shortfall, and straw and other alternative feeds, such as grain and screening pellets, are being utilized this winter to balance lower cost Size: 1MB. The economic optimum plant density is a function of corn yield and quality responses, seed cost and grain or silage price.

The economic plant density is lower than the plant density that maximizes yield. UW researched optimum corn yield and economic plant density from If corn is worth $ per bushel at harvest, then the standing corn for silage would be worth about $ per ton before the cost of harvesting for grain.

Corn and Soybean County Yields – A Estimated Costs of Crop Production – A Cash Corn and Soybean Prices – A Iowa Farm Custom Rate Survey – A The last week of May capped off one of the warmest Mays on record which allowed farmers to plant nearly all of the corn crop by the beginning of June.

Ninety-one percent of the corn crop had emerged by June 3. By the end of June 78 percent of the corn crop was rated in good to excellent condition. To estimate the sensitivity of expected changes in profit, we used a forage value of $, $, $, or $ per ton DM (four scenarios), and defined expected change in corn silage yield following the winter cereal crop in the rotation as 0 (no decline),or -1 ton DM per acre (three scenarios).

Once you determine the dry matter of the sample, you can then multiply the yield by the % dry matter to get an estimate of dry matter yield per acre. Example: 17’5” of a 30” corn row weighs 53 pounds Divided by 2 = tons per acre yieldFile Size: 98KB.

The value of drought-stressed corn silage can be estimated using expected nutrient composition and the cost of the nutrients. The average composition of drought-stressed corn silage in Table 1 is reasonable, but the composition of silage for a specific situation (e.g., hybrid, growing conditions, etc.) could be substantially different.

This statistic shows the production of corn for silage in the United States from to According to the report, around million tons of corn for silage were produced in the U.S. in   The additional soil nutrient value (P and K) removed in the non-grain portion of the silage (stover) is significant, at about $ per tonne of corn silage harvested (@ 65% moisture).

Calculating the cost per lb or tonne of dry matter can help put corn silage in perspective relative to what the market is willing to pay for standing hay.1/1(5).
