Colorado hay growers have until June 15 to submit listing information for the annual Colorado Hay Directory.
“Livestock owners within the state and across the country use the directory to find Colorado hay,” says Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture, which publishes the directory. “Hay continues to be an important crop in Colorado, and this publication is an important marketing tool that connects hay producers and buyers.”
The listing fee is $25; forms are available at Colorado State University Extension offices or by contacting the state ag department. The free directory will be available in August through Extension offices and state livestock associations and online at www.coloradoagriculture.com/hay.
Each listing includes the type and amount of hay available, bale type and size and whether or not laboratory analysis is available, certified weed-free status and whether the hay is organic. Grouped by state region, the directory also lists companies that offer hay-related products or services.
