The grade you are after in the final product and grade of your logs is a big factor in the conversion. 

Even for straight mill run you are looking at 30% bare minimum of loss due to the process.

All one size will also limit yield %.  A random width like 3,4,5 or 4,5,6 will give you a better yield.

And figure 25% waste from the dried material, from removing checks, rot and such. And from straight line ripping the lumber into strips

If it was me I would take logs that scale at least 2200 bd ft.  You will probably have a little left over but thats better then being one board short.

  For most species and sizes we charge $1.50/bf.
