Does any one know the formula for figuring the weight of ear corn in a crib? Granted it has something to do with the cubic feet of the crib but what does ear corn weigh per cubic foot?

Take 3 large containers the same size and shape and proportionaly smaller than your crib. Fill one 1/4 full the other 1/2 full, the other full.

If all three weights are proportional, then you can multiply the weight of the full container by how much greater the bin is.

Ok, knock it off!!!!! I warned you.

Gees, I'm outa here.

Spence makes sense to me,I think.
Kinda reminds me of the story about weighing a fish.
The way the people from(insert name of people from a place,or ethnic group to be belittled here)weight a fish.
Place fish in one hand,search around untill you find a rock that seems to be the same weight as the fish.Place rock in the other hand.
Guess the weight of the rock.
Seems to be about the same idea you had,huh?
Great minds think alike.:-)

A book I have shows 2&1/2 cubic feet per bushel, for good quality corn. A bushel of ear corn is 70 pounds, from the same book.
