1Returns were calculated by multiplying the 2008 yields by the price paid for feed barley minus the test weight discount paid at the Southwest Grain Terminal located at Gladstone on September 9.  The price paid on this date was $3.15/bu for grain with test weights heavier than 45 lb/bu.  Grain with a test weight of 45 lb/bu was discounted $.03/bu, with an additional discount of $.04/bu per pound down to 42 lb/bu.  Below 42 lb/bu, an additional discount of $.05/bu occurred per pound.   Returns also deduct $141.02, the sum of all listed costs from  the December 2007 Farm Management Planning Guide Projected 2008 Crop Budgets South West North Dakota for barley.
