I need to buy some ear corn for a project, and have located a farmer who has 84 bushels for sale. I don't need all 84 bushels, but need to figure out how much I can fit in the bed of my S-10 truck. (Standard size S-10 bed.) I've been buying ear corn from a local place, but I've not been happy with it. Their corn is very overpriced, moldy, and are small ears, even though I was promised large full ears. The corn from the local place is bagged in used seed corn bags. I also think this is last years crop, and even though it isn't a big deal, I was promised this years crop, which is really dry. What I need to figure out: Does anyone have an approximate size for a bushel of ear corn? One five gallon bucket, two buckets, three buckets? Do you have a standard container that I might be familiar with that is approximately a bushel of ear corn? How many bushels, approximately, would fit in the bed of my S-10 truck, without racks...and assuming the corn was level with the bed? What is the custom of loading, generally speaking, assuming that the ear corn is in a bin? (I don't have the health to be shoveling corn.) Oh yeah...the corn that I am looking to buy is supposed to be at 12% moisture. Thank you in advance!!!!!
