Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

32.2 lb (64.4%)

A bushel of wheat averages 60 lb, and this weight is often used in commercial contracts where the wheat is actually weighed by the truckload.

A bushel is a unit of volume equal to 2150.42 in³. 1 gallon is 231 in³, so

5 gal x 231 in³/gal x 60 lb/2150.42 in³ = 32.2 lb
