Louisiana State Fair Hay Contest
Sponsored By: LSU AgCenter Northwest Region
The Louisiana State Fair Hay Contest is designed to provide a showcase for the presentation of top quality hay and to recognize the producers of this hay. Hay is the only agricultural commodity that is bought and sold without quality and/or weight guaranteed. The quality of hay varies more than any other agricultural commodity. The Louisiana State Fair Hay Contest will provide educational information to producers regarding hay quality and contribute to Extension efforts in northwest Louisiana to enhance production and efficient use of high quality stored forage.
The Louisiana State Fair Hay Contest is open to producers of hay or baleage throughout Louisiana and the tri-state region (Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas) served by Shreveport and the Louisiana State Fair. Entries must be submitted through the county agent’s office either from the parish or county in which the hay was produced or the parish or county in which the producer lives and certified by Extension personnel as representing a field of at least five acres.
