Based on data from the University of Nebraska, ear corn is approximately 90% of the value of corn grain.
Based on the cash grain price of $3.81 in Newaygo on November 11, 2020, this would put the value at about $3.43/bushel.
If it's high moisture ear corn then you can use the conversion table found in the attached file from the University of Wisconsin to figure pounds per bushel and then calculate the price based on 90% of the value (due to the cob).
