The Farmer to Farmer Corn and Forage website is probably best thought of as an electronic neighborhood bulletin board which allows local farmers to get in touch with one another according to Mike Ballweg, University of Wisconsin-Extension crops and soils agent.

The website facilitates the local marketing of feed commodities where livestock producers in need of high moisture corn, corn silage, hay, or straw can easily make contact with sellers that have feed commodities for sale. The site developed and supported by UW-Extension, can be found at

The Farmer to Farmer Corn and Forage List is free of charge for both buyers and sellers. Users can search for, or list for sale, high moisture corn, corn grain, haylage, hay or straw. Buyers can search for farmers in just one Wisconsin county or in any number of counties at once.

"This site has been an excellent way for buyers and sellers to get in-touch locally," said Ballweg. "Neighbors often within short distances have been able to buy and sell as a result of the website."

Buyers can locate feed for their animals easily. Sellers can find buyers and save money in grain drying and marketing costs if they choose to sell their corn crop as high moisture corn or silage. All transactions and negotiations are handled directly between buyers and sellers.

Buyers and sellers can access the website immediately by going to:
