## Pasture Rent Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pasture Rent.

**Rp = A * H * Q**

- Where Rp is the Pasture Rent ($/AUM)
- A is the number of animal units
- H is the hay price per ton ($/ton)
- Q is the pasture quality factor

## How to Calculate Pasture Rent?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pasture Rent.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the number of animal units. In this example, the number of animal units is given as 3 .
- Next, determine the hay price per ton ($/ton). For this problem, the hay price per ton ($/ton) is given as 4 .
- Next, determine the pasture quality factor. In this case, the pasture quality factor is found to be .2.
- Finally, calculate the Pasture Rent using the formula above:

Rp = A * H * Q

Inserting the values from above yields:

Rp = 3 * 4 * .2 = 2.4 ($/AUM)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

number of animal units = 300

hay price per ton ($/ton) = 40

pasture quality factor = .18

Entering these values and solving gives:

Rp = 300 * 40 * .18 = 2160** **($/AUM)
