Colorado Department of Agriculture Accepting Annual Hay Directory Listings
May 3, 2023
Informing hay buyers for more than 25 years, the 2023 Colorado Hay Directory is now accepting listings from hay producers. The annual publication provides a by-county listing of available hay resources across Colorado.
“The Hay Directory helps livestock owners across the state and beyond to find the feed they need easily, whether they’re planning for a long term supply or in case of an emergency,” said Danielle Trotta, senior marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “The Hay Directory is an excellent resource for livestock and horse owners and associations, especially during dry years.”
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.
The listing fee is $25 and listing forms and payment must be received by June 30, 2023. The listing form is available at https://ag.colorado.gov/markets. Advertising opportunities are also available at $50 for a half-page ad or $90 for a full-page ad.
The 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.
