Hay Collection Underway for 40th Annual Bosque County Hay Show
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office – Bosque County will be collecting hay samples for the 40th Annual Bosque County Hay Show & Scholarship Auction. If you are interested in submitting hay sample(s) 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 6th. You may also bring your square bales and/or round bale samples to the Hay Show sampling location, located at the Walnut Springs Vo-Ag Building between 9:00am and Noon on Friday, September 7th. Samples will be taken from the conventional bales and/or round bales on the 7th so that the protein analysis can be made. Cost to submit samples is only $10, with no limit to the number of bales submitted for analysis. Only hay grown in Bosque County and/or adjoining counties will be eligible for the show and awards. Each entry fee will provide entrant with two meal tickets to the Hay Show, Awards Program and Scholarship Auction that will be held on October 15th at the Bosque Bottoms in Meridian.
This year we will also be selling some hay bales to the public as part of our scholarship fundraising. If you would like to donate any non-competition bales please contact Chelsea Dorward at the Extension Office 254-435-2331. If you’re in need of some quality hay, mark it on your calendar to attend the Hay Show October 15th.
