News briefs for May 10
June deadline for hay directory
The Colorado Department of Agriculture is accepting listings for the 2005 Colorado Hay Directory. This popular publication helps market Colorado hay to buyers in the state and across the country.
“Hay continues to be Colorado’s leading crop in terms of value of production,” said Wendy White, marketing specialist for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. “This directory is the primary method of marketing hay for many producers.”
The listing fee is $20 per submission, and the deadline is June 17. Forms are available at Colorado State University Cooperative Extension offices or by contacting the Colorado Department of Agriculture. This free directory is offered in print and also will be available at http://www.coloradoagriculture.com in August. As an additional benefit to listees, information also will be included in the Beef Business Directory, published by the AgJournal.
Since the Colorado Hay Directory first was published in 1987, it continues to be an important marketing tool for Colorado hay producers. Listings describe the variety and amount of hay available, bale type, whether the hay is certified weed-free and whether a laboratory analysis is available. Listings are grouped by region of the state.
For more information or to receive a listing form, call the Markets Division at (303) 239-4115, e-mail loretta at email@example.com or visit the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s Web site at http://www.coloradoagriculture.com.
