Using this planning budget, farmers growing corn silage can estimate their costs and returns for 2023. Table 1 presents estimates for corn silage production in Missouri. Assumptions were based on price forecasts as of September 2022. Detailed prices and practices are summarized in Tables 2 and 3. The production practices used to develop these cost estimates are common on Missouri farms. Use the “Your estimate” column to plan your operation’s costs and returns for 2023.
