A spreadsheet program to estimate the costs of
managed haying or grazing of CRP acres.

Version -- 8-21-06

INPUTS vs CALCULATED VALUES
In the Haying Costs and Grazing Costs sheets all blue numbers are inputs and all other numbers are calculated
from these inputs. The spreadsheet automatically recalculates every time an additional input is entered. Thus, it is
important to wait until all data have been entered and reviewed before interpreting any of the calculated results (i.e.,
black numbers).

DESCRIPTION OF INPUTS
The paper titled Estimating the Costs of Managed Haying and Grazing of CRP (MF-2657, located at
www.agmanager.info) serves as a user's guide and provides a more detailed documentation of the concepts and
formulas used in this spreadsheet. Also, several of the input cells (i.e., blue numbers) have a red diamond in the
upper right hand corner of the cell (if the comments do not appear go to View / Comments on the Excel menu). By
moving your mouse cursor over this diamond, a brief description of the input will be displayed on the screen.

If your CRP rental rate is higher than this calculated breakeven rental rate (line 18), it is less
2
A rental rate reduction percentage higher than this value would indicate that buying hay is
less expensive than emergency haying of CRP. Put another way, the reduction in CRP rental
rate (Line 1) would have to be at this level or less in order for haying CRP acres to be

Recommendation (based on your inputs) -- harvesting hay from CRP acres is
more economical than purchasing hay from other market outlets.

1
If your CRP rental rate is higher than this calculated breakeven rental rate (line 8), it is less
expensive to graze private pasture.

2
A rental rate reduction percentage higher than this value would indicate that grazing private
land is less expensive than emergency grazing of CRP. Put another way, the reduction in
CRP rental rate (Line 1) would have to be at this level or less in order for grazing CRP acres
to be competitive with private land.

Recommendation (based on your inputs) -- grazing pasture from other market
outlets is more economical than grazing CRP acres.
