"Hay continues to be a leading crop in the state, and we have requests from around the country for Colorado hay," 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 25th edition of the Colorado Hay Directory features nearly 100 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, Hutchison Incorporated, ProAG-Morris Industries Inc. and Scimetrics Ltd. Inc.
The directory is available online at www.coloradoagriculture.com/hay. For more information or to request a copy of the 2011 Colorado Hay Directory, call the Colorado Department of Agriculture at (303) 239-4115.
