Find Hay in Annual Directory

 

LAKEWOOD, Colo. –The Colorado Department of Agriculture publishes the Colorado Hay Directory annually to help connect hay producers with buyers. The 2012 edition of the directory is available to the public at no cost.

 

“Demand for hay is especially strong this year with drought conditions nationwide,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “The directory is a great way for producers to market their hay and it is an important resource for buyers across Colorado and the nation.”

 

The 26th edition of the Colorado Hay Directory features producers and brokers of hay as well as companies that provide hay-related products and services. Categorized by region, each listing includes the type and amount of hay available, bale type and size, whether or not laboratory analysis is available, certified weed free status and identifies organic hay.

 

The Colorado Hay Directory is published by the Colorado Department of Agriculture in cooperation with participating Colorado hay producers, Colorado State University Extension, and with support from Ag Biz Solutions, LLC, Colorado Hay Service, Green Colorado, Hutchison Incorporated, ProAG-Morris Industries Inc. and Scimetrics Ltd. Inc.

 

The directory and other hay resources are available online at www.coloradoagriculture.com. For more information or to request a copy of the 2012 Colorado Hay Directory, call the Colorado Department of Agriculture at (303) 239-4115.
