New hay pricing app
Farmers and landowners can get help identifying the price of hay, and/or negotiate the sale or purchase of standing hay through a new smartphone app that can quickly find hay price information. Users of this app can also enter projected hay yield, cutting schedule and harvest costs to calculate a standing value per acre according to the app developer, Greg Blonde, University of Wisconsin-Extension Waupaca County agriculture agent.
The app is free and available for Android smart phones and tablets on the Google Play store by searching for “Hay Pricing”
“It’s that time of the year when fresh mowed hay fills the air across Wisconsin, which also means many farmers and rural neighbors will be negotiating the sale of standing hay,” Blonde said. “An estimated 2.5 million acres of dry hay and haylage are harvested each year in this state with baled hay alone accounting for $80-$100 million in market sale.”
