Helping hay and forage suppliers connect with potential buyers is the goal of a Facebook group page established by South Dakota State University Extension.
Called SDSU Extension Feed & Forage Finder, the group is open to anyone interested in either buying or selling hay or feedstuffs. Listings can include baled hay and straw, silage, pasture for rent, custom feeding and custom grazing.
After the October blizzard that decimated many herds in the region, Extension agents opened the Facebook group to include discussions and agreements on getting cattle back on land through land shares or pasture rentals.
The group has more than 150 members.
For additional information, email Warren Rusche, SDSU Extension cow-calf field specialist, at Warren.Rusche@sdstate.edu.
