Directories are great tools for farmers to find services. Colorado has long produced an annual directory of hay suppliers, and will do it again for 2017. The annual publication is designed to connect hay producers with buyers.
With the wildfires earlier this year, hay shipments went from all over the country to help out. And every year, the Colorado Department of Agriculture gets requests for its directory from across the country. Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture, noted that the department gets calls from across the country every year requesting information about Colorado Hay.
The fee to be listed in the guide is $25, and the deadline to be included is June 16. Forms are available at Colorado State University Extension offices or by contacting the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
The free directory is made available in August through CSU Extension offices, horse and livestock associations in the state, and at ag events including the Colorado State Fair, National Western Stock Show and the Colorado Farm Show. The directory can be found online at coloradoagriculture.com/hay.
Each listing includes the type and amount of hay available, bale type and size, whether or not laboratory analysis is available, its certified weed-free status, and organic hay is identified. Listings are grouped by region in the state, and there is also a listing of companies offering hay-related products or services.
Those who want to advertise in the directory can buy a half-page ad for $50 and a full page for $90.
