Estimating Tonnage in a Silo

Asked October 23, 2019, 4:05 PM EDT

I have a client who said he used to pick up a chart from the Extension office that shows tonnage of chopped corn silage in various size silos. I looked on the Cooperative Extension site and found an article titled Estimating the Tonnage of Silage in a Bunker Silo dated 9-28-12 from University of Nebraska. It includes a formula for figuring this out. Wondering if we have available or can obtain a chart showing tonnage of chopped silage in bunker silo? Or is there a more simplified calculation that I could share with him? Thank you.
