A type of electronic bulletin board helps farmers market high-moisture corn, corn silage, hay or straw, says Mike Ballweg, University of Wisconsin-Extension crops and soils agent.
The Farmer to Farmer Corn and Forage Web Site, developed and supported by UW-Extension, is free for buyers and sellers. Users can search for or list various forages for sale. Buyers can search for farmers in one Wisconsin county or in any number of counties at once. All transactions and negotiations are handled directly between buyers and sellers.
Those without Internet access can get help using the site at their county Extension office. For more information, contact Ballweg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-459-5904.
