Hay Producers in Trouble

Eastern Plains hay farmers are stuck with a soggy mess after an extremely wet spring.  Although the rain has been beneficial to most crops, even including grass hay and alfalfa to feed livestock, but after the hay is cut there is nowhere dry for the hay to lay and dry out as it needs to.
Producers, including Don Leonard, feels the wet spring is an “economic disaster.”
For the past 30 days, northeastern Colorado has seen five to eight inches precipitation levels.  Last year, levels were at .5 and .2 inches.
Leonard, who is also the treasurer of the Colorado Hay and Forage Association said the hay has been laying out for 28 days but is still wet.
