Determining the Value of Straw

As the livestock sector continues to source feed supplies, our farmer members may have questions about the value of straw. Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development (MARD) has farm management resources to help. MARD’s Straw Calculator can help determine the NPK dollar value of the straw as a crop fertilizer. This decision-making tool can assist crop and livestock producers in weighing the value of the straw.

As dry conditions continue in many areas across Manitoba, MARD has tools and resources available at https://www.gov.mb.ca/agriculture/dry.html to help make management decisions for crop and livestock.
