The Colorado Department of Agriculture is accepting listings for the 2017 Colorado Hay Directory. The annual publication connects hay producers with buyers as CDA Marketing Specialist Wendy White explains

White: “For 31 years, the Colorado Department of Agriculture has been publishing the annual hay directory. We’re currently accepting listings until June 16th. There is a $25 listing fee. The publication is a great way to connect our Colorado hay producers with buyers — not only within Colorado but buyers from across the country. We get a lot of calls from livestock and horse owners from around the nation looking for Colorado hay.”

White continues

White: “The directory will be available in August at CSU extension offices. We have them a various horse and livestock events and activities as well as National Western Show, the Colorado State Fair, Colorado Farm Show as well as our website at coloradoagriculture.com/hay.”

Discussing NASS Crop Progress report released on Monday, here is Lindsay Burnet from the USDA office in Greeley.

Burnet: “Warmer weather to finish the week accelerated planting and crop development in areas that were hindered earlier in the week. Moisture received continues to aid pasture, crop and soil moisture conditions, but some localities reported severe weather. For most of the state livestock is doing well and many being moved to summer pasture. As of May 11th, snow pack in Colorado was at 100 percent measured as precent of median snowfall. Storage feed supplies were rated 5 percent short, 87 percent adequate and 8 percent surplus.”
