Cooperative Extension offers hay and straw directory

Jul 23, 2020

Orono — University of Maine Cooperative Extension is offering a hay and straw directory for sellers to list, and for buyers to locate, feed resources for livestock.

Hay and forage producers in Maine have experienced some major swings in weather over the past two years. Excessive rain delayed harvests last season, reducing quality, and this year excessively dry conditions in some parts of the state are reducing yields for second and third cuttings.

The directory is being updated with feed resources available for the 2020 harvest. Growers should visit the site to update or add their available products. Information about forage quality testing and feed budgeting also is available.

For more information, contact, or 342-5971.
