Poll: Most use all their hay on-farm

Published on 04 May 2015

Most Progressive Forage Grower readers use all their hay on-farm.

In a recent poll, Progressive Forage Grower asked, “How far away do you deliver your hay?”

Only about 9 percent of readers said that they deliver hay between zero to 10 miles away. Another 11.1 percent said that they deliver hay about 11 to 30 miles away from their farm.

Some readers are willing to go the distance, literally. Around 16 percent said that they deliver hay more than 101 miles away from the farm.

Losing the majority by a few percentage points, 31.1 percent said that they deliver hay between 31 to 100 miles away.

However, most of our readers prefer to stay home. About 33 percent said that they use all of their hay on-farm.  FG
