trying to figure ear corn and cubic feet


confuseHere is what I'm looking at. I found a rectangular shaped crib. It is 72' long, 12' wide, and 12' to the roof trusses. I would just round the ears up from the walls, don't think the roof is made to go to the lid. I know the cubic feet of the building is 3455.6544 ft. I would like to know how many bushels of ear corn will fit. THANKS.

Cubic feet x .4 = bushels of shelled corn in the crib

LENGTH X WIDTH X DEPTH=     X .4= BU.

YOUR CRIB WILL HOLD1382 BU.

Thanks to everyone. I think I will pass on this crib. It was a wooden crib with 1x6 siding with 2" gap. It has however been tined over to keep the wood from rotting. Nice crib but I just dont think the ears would dry down. I have found some 14' x 14' round wire cribs. A guy I went  to school with, his grampa has 5 or 6 of them all the same size.

I come up with 4147.2 ? 72 feet x 12 feet x 12 feet= 10368 Cubic feet x .4= 4147.2
Unless I am missing something?
