Soybean Loss  10/03/11 2:28:17 PM

There's a question that comes up every year before soybean harvest.      
"When do I start losing money for discounts vs. the extra weight I pick up for the water content?"
This sheet does not figure in any harvest loss that can occur.      
                       
I am using 1000 bushel loads and $14.00 beans
