The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office – Bosque County will be collecting hay samples for the 39th Annual Bosque County Hay Show & Scholarship Auction. If you are interested in submitting hay sample into this year’s contest, entries maybe dropped off at the Bosque County Extension Office (located at 104 S Fuller in Meridian) or at your local FFA Chapter by Thursday, September 14th . You may also bring your square bales and/or round bale samples to the Hay Show sampling location, located at the Cranfills Gap Vo-Ag Building between 9:00AM and Noon on Friday, September 15th. Samples will be taken from the conventional bales and/or round bales on the 15th so that the protein analysis can be made.
Cost is $10, with no limit to the number of bales submitted for analysis. Only hay grown in Bosque County will be eligible for the show and awards, but outside county hay may still be submitted for analysis. Each entry fee will qualify for two complimentary meal tickets to the Hay Show, Awards Program and Scholarship Auction that will be held on October 16th at the Bosque Bottoms in Meridian.
