Converting per bale to tonne

As a rule of thumb a 10 bale equivalent round is approximately 200 kg’s of Dry Matter (DM). Multiply cost per bale by 5 to get dollars per tonne. If dealing with 8 bale equivalents then multiple cost per bale by 6.

Costing Feed Example

Costing per kg DM eaten and per MJ ME eaten

= wet weight x DM%
= price per tonne feed ÷ by kg DM ÷ Utilisation
= cents/Kg DM eaten ÷ DM eaten ÷ by MJ ME/kg DM

Example: Silage Pasture, good costs $80/tonnne; 33% Dry Matter; 11 MJ ME/Kg DM Utilisation of 85% (10% wastage storage + 5% wastage feeding out).
