    Isn't cubic feet a measurement of volume and square feet a measurement of area?

    A lot of guys use 800lbs/acre.

    A yard will be close to a ton.

    $60/ton would be a great price here. Last year was $70/ton but we buy tonnes, 2200lbs and it was $78 I believe.

    Depends on moisture content, but in general, one ton per yard/one yard per ton, give or take.

    This is a product of depth. At what depth are you assuming?

    Mag Chloride is the wave of the future. Salt is so 1990's.

    We use about 300k gal of mag a year. I think there is a place and time for 1 or the other or mixed.

    60 a ton is a great deal, By the time mine is trucked in it is near $100 a ton.
