Emergency Hay Available
In response to the hay shortage, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is developing sources of hay in Florida and neighboring states.
The following is a listing of sellers who have called in from Oregan to make hay available to Florida livestock producers.
1 South Broadway, 200F
Edmond, OK 73034
World Feeder Bermuda Grass, square and round bales
Currently, 20,000 to 30,000 tons are available for the Florida market (based on
demand). WFBG is excellent horse and dairy-quality cattle hay. NEL levels vary between .70 -.74. Protein varies upwards of 20%-24%. It contains a very high sugar content which causes livestock to prefer it's taste over that of high quality alfalfa. In recent dairy cattle tests versus alfalfa, results have shown increased milk production, butterfat content, protein levels, and reduced forage costs. This hybrid grass maintains an extremely deep root system which makes it more drought and freeze tolerant than any other type of hay known.
RT #3, Box 6600
Pryor, OK 74361
Bermuda and Blue Stem
2000 large round bales of Bermuda, Blue Stem. Organic fertilized and sprayed for
weeds, will load.
