Enter the number of animal units, the hay price per ton ($/ton), and the pasture quality factor into the calculator to determine the Pasture Rent. ## Pasture Rent Formula The following formula is used to calculate the Pasture Rent. Rp = A * H * Q • Where Rp is the Pasture Rent ($/AUM)
• A is the number of animal units
• H is the hay price per ton ($/ton) • Q is the pasture quality factor To calculate the pasture rent, multiply the number of animal units by the hay price per ton and the pasture quality factor. ## How to Calculate Pasture Rent? The following example problems outline how to calculate Pasture Rent. Example Problem #1 1. First, determine the number of animal units. In this example, the number of animal units is given as 3 . 2. Next, determine the hay price per ton ($/ton). For this problem, the hay price per ton ($/ton) is given as 4 . 3. Next, determine the pasture quality factor. In this case, the pasture quality factor is found to be .2. 4. Finally, calculate the Pasture Rent using the formula above: Rp = A * H * Q Inserting the values from above yields: Rp = 3 * 4 * .2 = 2.4 ($/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)
