How much does ear corn weigh?

OK, 'nother stupid question.

I want to buy a small quantity of ear corn (for feed), but enough that it doesn't make sense to buy it in sacks. I think the quantity that makes the most sense to me is to just get the back of the pickup bed filled. I think there's probably a local farmer or two willing to sell me that kind of quanitity. So, rather than going through scales and whatnot, seems like we could just agree on a reasonable price. So (finally) my question: about how much would a pickup load of ear corn weigh? I know there'll be a variance depending on moisture content and whatnot, but what's a reasonable average?

thanks!
Tom

A bushel of ear corn weighs 70#,and takes up 2.5 square feet in volume. You can do the rest of the figureing yourself.But,I bet the Farmers will want you to weigh the truck full,and empty anyway.

Most hybrids today only have one ear. Some of the older ones would put on two ears if the conditions were right.
