Silage Value Calculator



Enter your values below for WIDTH, LENGTH and HEIGHT as they corrispond to your silage pile. Then enter your CORN PRICE and click on CALCULATE.  For concrete wall bunkers use dimensions measured from where the cover meets the top of wall. HEIGHT = Approximate verticle depth or thickness of the silage pile measured from pile peek to ground.


Example Calculation for a

Bunker Size of 60' x 200' x 12'


WIDTH: 60'
LENGTH:  200'
HEIGHT:  12'
CORN ($/bushel)
$5.00 $
Silage Value Multiplier¹  x 28.6
Suggested Silage Value = $143 $
Tons of Dry Matter,
(WxLxH) x 15(DM/FT³ of Corn Silage)/2000
Total Value of DM in Bunk = $154,440 $
Avg. % Improvement
in DM and Digestibility²
