1Returns were calculated by multiplying the 2008 yield by protein premium or discount paid at the Southwest Grain Terminal located at Gladstone on September 9.  The price paid on this date was $7.18/bu, for a grain protein concentration of 14%.  An additional $.07/bu was paid for each additional 0.2% increase in grain protein up to 15%, 15% protein received an additional $.20/bu. An additional $.04/bu was paid for each additional 0.2% increase in grain protein up to 17% above which an additional premium was not paid.  Grain was discounted $0.08/bu for each 0.2% reduction in grain protein from 14% to 11%,below which no additional discount was not assigned.  Returns factored in discounts for grain with a test weight <58 lb/bu [-$0.02/bu for 0.5 lb/bu between 58 and 57 lb/bu; -$0.03/bu for 0.5 lb/bu between 57 and 55 lb/bu; -$0.04/bu for 0.5 lb/bu between 55 and 52 lb/bu; and -$0.05/bu for 0.5 lb/bu between 52 and 51 lb/bu].  Returns also deduct $146.49, the sum of all listed costs from  the December 2007 Farm Management Planning Guide Projected 2008 Crop Budgets South West North Dakota for spring wheat.
