The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office – Bosque County will be collecting hay samples for the 42nd Annual Bosque County Hay Show & Scholarship Fundraiser. If you are interested in submitting hay samples into this year’s contest, entries maybe dropped off at the Bosque County Extension Office (located at 104 S Fuller in Meridian) between 8AM and 10AM on Friday, September 18, 2020. Sampling will close on September 18, but you may also drop samples off early at the Extension Office.
Samples will be taken from the conventional bales and/or round bales on the 18th so that the protein analysis can be made. Cost is $10 per bale. Only hay grown in Bosque County and/or adjoining counties will be eligible for the show and awards. This year we will not have the live educational portion. Results and awards will be posted online at https://bosque.agrilife.org/ in mid-October and mailed to participants. The Hay Show Committee is also collecting donations for their annual Bosque County Hay Show and Scholarship fundraiser. If you are interested in contributing towards this, please go to contact Chelsea Dorward at 254-435-2331 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
