Value of Standing Forage Excel Tool

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Value of Standing Forage Tool was developed to help producers determine the value of standing forage in the field. The numbers pre-populated in this tool are not intended to represent any one operation but rather market prices and average cost estimates taken from the Nebraska Farm Custom Rates Report. Each individual operation should adjust key inputs and market prices to reflect their own situation. (Version 2020-07-31)
