Annual Publication Helps Market Colorado Hay
BROOMFIELD, Colo.-The Colorado Department of Agriculture is accepting listings for the 2015 Colorado Hay Directory. This annual publication, celebrating its 29th anniversary, markets Colorado hay to buyers.
“The Colorado Hay Directory continues to be a popular publication,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “It is a vital resource for Colorado hay producers and hay buyers from around the state and nation.”
The listing fee is $25, and the deadline is June 15, 2015. Forms are available at Colorado State University Extension offices or by contacting the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
This free directory will be available in August through CSU Extension offices and various livestock associations in the state as well as at agricultural events such as the Colorado State Fair, National Western Stock Show and the Colorado Farm Show. The directory will also be online at www.coloradoagriculture.com/hay
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. Listings are grouped by region of the state. The directory also includes listings for companies that offer hay-related products or services. Advertising opportunities are also available at $50 for a half-page ad or $90 for a full-page ad.
