CDA: Annual Publication Connects Hay Producers and Buyers

Broomfield, CO, August 12, 2020 – Whether livestock owners are looking for alfalfa, grass, mix or other hay types, the 2020 Colorado Hay Directory is now available to connect hay producers and buyers.
“Drought conditions are affecting livestock owners across the state, and they are looking for hay,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “The Colorado Hay Directory becomes an even more important resource during dry years.”
The 34th 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 Augie’s Ag Sales, LLC, KeyAg and Tytan International.
