FYI. Just got off the phone with St. Clair county co-op. A pallet of corn is 40 bags at 50lbs each, so 1 ton. It's $280 for a pallet, they cut you about .37 cents a bag if you buy a whole pallet. A 55 gallon drum is $43.80. It takes 5 drums to equate to a pallet. 5x$43.80=$219. So you save about $60 by buying drums , but then you have to bucket it out of there into something else and handle those heavy ass drums. Just food for thought.

Pallet is 2000 pounds divided by 5 barrels equals 400 lbs for the mathematically challenged.

55 gallon drum full is almost exactly 6 bushels @ 56 lbs each. So 336 lbs +/- a few pounds.

I give $1/bushel over Dec19 on the CME trade for mine. It’s fair for my farmers I buy from. I’m happy. They’re happy

350 pounds is more accurate in my experience


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

Listen to me and paw paw. 6 to 6 1/4 bushel of dry corn is bout all that's going in a 55 gallon drum. Bushel = 56 lbs.

Some corn is more dense or wet and that will make a lot of difference in the amount a 55 gallon drum will hold. If you buy from a farm, make sure it is dry or it will mold.

For long term storage 14.5% moisture is where it needs to be at least.

Cheap bulk corn is great but if you don’t have a way to handle it, it’s tough.

Not only that but it needs to be clean, not full of pieces of cob and stalks, or it will stop up your spin feeder, and that's a biotch to remedy. Ok, so that's good to know that a 55 gal drum holds less than 350 lbs. Think i'll just go the pallet route, hell of a lot easier to handle and usually clean.

The elevator I've used weighs the bulk corn and charges per pound. Average weight of drum is 325-340. It's been about 11 cents a lb.

I’ve always traded there but is there anywhere around bham to get bags? (Without the “monster” buck in the front)

It’s not hard to go buy 1/2 by 1/2 wire screen build a frame and clean the corn pouring it into the feeder.

I’ll have corn on pallets starting late August in Montevallo. It will be cheaper than $280 ton.

$280/ton is $7/50lb bag. That's not a great price.

I can get it for $5.95/50lb bag even if I buy one bag.
