I have to have my soy beans hauled roughly 150 miles to market, it is going to cost a dollar a bushel to haul them. I own an old LN series ford dump truck with a 3208 Cat, engine. The old girl is in pretty good shape. In you guys opinion could I at least make wages hauling my own beans? I am not going to do it this year, but in my following crop years, I really can't see hauling ever coming down reguardless of fuel prices, as it never has in the past, so if it was you what would you do?By the way it is twin screw and licensed for 48000 lbs.

I've had to ship Grain Sorghum to St Louis before. Its 200 miles one way and cost me 70 cents per bushel with a semi.

I would think a semi would haul for you for around 60 to 70 cents if you have any in the area that haul grain. They can haul 900 to 1000 bushel per load.

If you have a 16' box with 48"+ sides you should be able to haul around 400 bushel.

You should make over $50 an hour if you don't have to wait in line to dump figuring $1.00 per bushel.

You should tarp them also to keep them from blowing off.
