GDA Announces Hay Exchange Program

The Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) has launched an online Hay Exchange program. The online service connects farmers searching for hay to those who have hay available.

"This summer Georgia farmers have been impacted by sweltering and dry weather conditions, as a result, hay production has been challenging," said Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black. "Our goal for the exchange is to ensure farmers have an efficient and practical way of exchanging such a routinely-used agricultural product, despite difficult growing conditions."

The Hay Exchange program is another example of GDA's commitment to Georgia farmers to ensure that they are equipped with the resources they need to be good stewards of their land and livestock.
