Hay Publication Deadline
If you are a hay producer in Colorado it's time to get your listing in for the 2015 Colorado Hay Directory. Wendy Lee White, Marketing Specialist with the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
WHITE: The Colorado Department of Agriculture has been putting together the Colorado Hay Directory, this is the 29th year so it's been one of our most popular publications that really helps connect Colorado producers with hay buyers.
White talks about why being listed in the directory is so important.
WHITE: It really gives them an outlet to help market their hay and this is a popular publication not only with Colorado livestock producers but producers across the country looking for hay. So we get calls from across the nation looking for Colorado hay and this is the publication that we direct them to especially in some more drought ridden parts of the country that are in dire need of hay. This is a really great resource for them and it's a good opportunity for Colorado producers to market their hay.
She says they are coming up to the deadline for listings.
WHITE: There is a $25 listing fee to be included in the publication and the deadline for listing is June 15th but anybody who is growing or brokering or transporting hay in Colorado that has hay available we invite them to participate and list in this years publication.
And that's Colorado Ag Today. I'm Greg Martin, thanks for listening on the Ag Information Network of the West.
