Both hay buyers and sellers are reminded that the online hay directory maintained by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry is available. The agency is receiving numerous calls from both buyers and sellers who do not know about the directory.
“Since we began deleting entries after 60 days unless the sellers tell us they still have hay for sale we haven’t had complaints about our directory being out of date,” said Glen Schickedanz, Market News Coordinator with ODAFF. “This is an excellent tool for locating supplies or letting people know you have hay for sale.”
His office is receiving about an equal number of calls from both buyers and sellers, he said.
The Oklahoma hay directory is online at www.oda.state.ok.us and go to the Directory. The hay hotline is still open at 1-800-580-6543. Schickedanz can be contacted through the hay hotline or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
