Enter the 2016 Ozark Empire Fair Hay Show

Putting up good quality hay is a challenge in the Ozarks due to weather. The best way to analyze the weather factor is to test the hay. While you’re testing it, you can enter it in the Ozark Empire Fair Hay Show. The show is designed to educate hay growers on the merits of testing forages,and those that have entered have found it aids in the marketing process. Cost is $21 per sample to run the lab test, and the entry deadline is July 11, 2016. Get your entry form here and contact the Webster County Extension Center at 417-859-2044 or by email at websterco@missouri.edu to arrange for the hay to be sampled.

Forage sampling especially important before feeding

Wet weather has made haymaking difficult. Forage quality declines rapidly as seed stems grow. We loan forage probes to get accurate samples for testing. Learn more about this process.
