Sowing enough barley to produce 51 beers per second

Using some basic tractor cab maths, here at Bulla Burra we are currently sowing about 3750 barley seeds per second, per machine. If we assume that the harvested crop is 30x what seed was sown, and assuming the barley goes malt, and that there are 2200 barley seeds needed for a 330ml beer (source: Google from tractor cab), then we are sowing enough barley per second to produce 51 beers per second per machine. Makes you proud to be a farmer. Cheers!
