Iowa hay and straw producers are being urged to register or update their listings on the Iowa Hay and Straw Directory.

The directory lists Iowa producers with hay and straw for sale, as well as organizations and businesses associated with marketing quality hay and straw, according to Bill Northey, Iowa ag secretary.

By updating their listings, farmers can ensure that the directory remains a helpful resource, Northey says.

“This directory can serve as a critical link for those producing hay and those looking to buy, so we encourage Iowans to take advantage of this free directory,” he says.

Listings are available to interested buyers throughout the nation, Northey explains, but only sellers from within Iowa can be included in the directory.

Interested farmers can access the directory online or call the Hay/Straw Hotline at 800-383-5079. The department will fax or send printed applications to be filled out.
