Hay production resources

To help farmers meet the increasing demand for hay, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Washington County, N.Y.,  compiled Hay Production Resources for New York and Similar Climates. 
     The resource collects more than 75 articles, organized into 13 chapters. It’s available on a computer CD ($5) or can be downloaded from this website: http://counties.cce.cornell.edu/Washington (click on “Agriculture” and find it under “Highlights”). 
    There are articles explaining principles and practices covering agronomy, machinery, drying hay, risk management, hay quality and livestock feed requirements and even hay for bioenergy.  “The market for hay is strong and customers are demanding a high quality product,” said Aaron Gabriel of Washington County Extension.  “This resource will help farmers capture the opportunity of a strong hay market.”
