Poll: Most readers store majority of hay in the barn

Published on 31 July 2018

Most Progressive Forage readers store the majority of their hay in a barn or shed.

In a recent online poll, Progressive Forage asked, “How do you store the majority of your hay?”

There were a good variety of answers. Silage bags and silage bunkers received the least votes, 2.8 and 3.7 percent, respectively. Tarped stacks also received poor attention, with only 5.3 percent of the vote. Stockpiling did slightly better with 6 percent of the vote. Plastic wrapped bales received 9.9 percent of the vote. And about 12.7 percent of readers store the majority of their hay in-field (with no plastic wrap).

Most readers opted to use silos or barns or sheds for the majority of their hay storage. A quarter of readers (25 percent) said they store their hay in silos, and the remaining 34.6 percent said they store their hay in the barn or shed.  end mark
