RBC I The Colorado Department of Agriculture is accepting listings for the 2019 Colorado Hay Directory. The annual publication connects hay producers with buyers.
“This publication continues to be a great way for Colorado producers to promote their hay,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “The directory reaches hay buyers across the state and the nation.”
The listing fee is $25, and the deadline is June 14, 2019. Forms are available at Colorado State University Extension offices or by contacting the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
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 such as the Colorado State Fair, National Western Stock Show and the Colorado Farm Show. The directory will also be online at www.coloradoagriculture.com/hay.
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.
