“Every year we receive calls from buyers across the country looking for Colorado hay. With the current drought conditions, this directory may be even more important for livestock owners this year,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “The publication is also a valuable way for Colorado producers to market their hay.”

The listing fee is $25, and the deadline is June 15, 2018. Forms are available at Colorado State University (CSU) Extension offices or by contacting the Colorado Department of Agriculture.

This free directory will be available in August through CSU Extension offices and various horse and 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 HERE.

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.
