We have it tested and extended ag comes up w the value based on commercial fertilizer. The nutrient value is huge when determining price. Our new barn has wet dry shelf feeders and incredible nutrients. Older barn was not great this year. If u need I can email you our test as a baseline. We take 100% of the value of commercial because we don't figure any of the micros you get that you can absolutely not get with commercial fertilizer. Last 2 years its been pretty equal to what application cost are we get a check for the manure we sell that is about the same amount. Example if it cost 75$ an acre to apply i think we got 70$ an qcre for the manure. That would be equal to same analysis as commercial fertilizer .
