    I think what you want ready-mixed concrete....
    Cement is a component of that.

    I Googled your area and $70 - $100 per CY came back.
    You will have to call around (with your mix design) and get some quotes.

    You don't "pump" out of the truck .....hehehe
    You back the truck up to a concrete pump if you have difficult access.

    If you have good access, you can "tailgate" out of the truck and not have to buy pump time.

    Check your overhead clearance and compare to the truck you want to use.
    You might be able to drive inside and tailgate.

    You will need ventilation to evacuate the diesel fumes from the truck. That is if you can get the truck inside.
    Consider renting a couple of 36" fans and pull the truck outside from time to time during the pour if necessary.

    If you can't get the truck inside you will have to pump it. Or wheel it (wheelbarrow) but that would be brutal and labor intensive to get it down fast.

    Guessing at about 900 square feet...
    Prolly need about 3-4 guys that can finish if you want a nice slab. And maybe a couple of squids to help you get it down. That's if you're not wheeling it.

    I learned something new today , Navvy jack is a BC term , I thought it was a common term .


    In British Columbia, "navvy jack" is a common term in construction and landscaping trades and in their respective supply stores for 1/2", 3/4" crushed rock and sand to be mixed with Portland cement to make concrete.[6] The usage derives from "Navvy Jack", by ordinary name Jack Thomas, a former navvy who used a rowboat to mine good-quality gravel from beaches in West Vancouver and infrequently ran a rowboat-ferry for settlers on Burrard Inlet and English Bay

    You shouldn't have to pump 11 cubic feet? How thick is your pole barn floor. Find someone that can get you a deal down there for a yard of concrete. There's 27 cubic feet in a yard.
