2023 East Kentucky Hay Contest

As part of the 2023 East Kentucky Annual Hay Contest, free hay/haylage sampling is available through the Magoffin County Ag & Natural Resources program in conjunction with UK Ag Extension Forages specialists. Results from the testing provided farmers with the nutritional value of hay and haylage, rations, and can result in reduced feed costs, increased animal performance, and information to improve forage stands.

Seventeen counties participated in the East Kentucky Hay Contest. We had 372 hay samples entered in the contest. Magoffin County had 4 farmers participate in the contest. Magoffin County had two winners in the mixed hay category. Thomas Green placed second with his hay sample and said that he couldn’t have done it without help from Nick Stephens. Edison McCarty placed third. Congratulations to Thomas Green and Edison McCarty!
