The price paid on this date was $3.25/bu, assuming a minimum test weight of 60 lb/bu. Grain was discounted $.01/bu for each 0.5 lb reduction in test weight between 60 and 59 lb/bu,$.03/bu per 0.5 lb reduction between 59 and 58 lb/bu, $0.04/bu between 58 and 55 lb/bu, and $0.05/bu per 0.5 lb/bu reduction between 55 and 50 lb/bu.
