ESTIMATING GRAIN AND HAY
1. To Find the Number of Bushels of Grain or Shelled Corn in a Bin: Multiply the length by the width by the depth (all in feet) and divide by 1½.
2. To Find the Number of Bushels of Ear Corn in a Crib: Multiply the length by the width by the average depth (all in feet) and divide by 2½. If the crib is round, multiply the distance around the crib by the diameter by the depth of the corn (all in feet) and divide by 10.
3. To Find the Number of Tons of Hay in a Mow: Multiply the length by the width by the height in feet and divide by 422 if the hay is well settled. If a mow is shallow or recently filled divide by 512 cubic feet.
4. To Find the Number of Tons of Hay in a Stack: Add the width of the stack and its "over" (distance from the ground on one side over the top to the ground on the other side), divide the sum by 4, and multiply this result by itself. The resulting product multiplied by the length of the stack will give its volume in cubic feet. Divide by 512, 422 or 343 cubic feet to find the number of tons.
5. To Find the Number of Tons in a Round Stack: Measure the distance around the stack, and the distance over the stack. Divide the distance "around" by stack by 4, subtract this quotient from the "over" and divide the remainder by 2 for the "height." Then multiply ¼ the distance "around" by itself, and the product by the height for the cubic feet, and divide by 512, 422, or 350 for the number of tons.
