Enter the weight of silage fed (kg) and the volume of silage removed (m^3) into the Silage Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Silage Density.

## Silage Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Silage Density.

SD = WS / VSR

• Where SD is the Silage Density (kg/m^3)
• WS is the weight of silage fed (kg)
• VSR is the volume of silage removed (m^3)

## How to Calculate Silage Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Silage Density.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the weight of silage fed (kg).
1. The weight of silage fed (kg) is given as: 6000.
2. Next, determine the volume of silage removed (m^3).
1. The volume of silage removed (m^3) is provided as: 200.
3. Finally, calculate the Silage Density using the equation above:

SD = WS / VSR

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

SD = 6000 / 200 = 30 (kg/m^3)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

weight of silage fed (kg) = 1599

volume of silage removed (m^3) = 400

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

SD = WS / VSR = ?
