Hey, it's a Hay App!

November 3, 2015 07:02 PM

Did you know there are 2.5 million acres of dry hay and haylage harvested each year in Wisconsin alone? That adds up to as much as $100 million in annual sales. The downside - there's no established commodity market for hay, according to Greg Blonde, University of Wisconsin Extension ag agent.

“Finding reliable hay market information can be a challenge, and trying to determine a value while the hay is still standing in the field can be even more difficult,” he says.

That's where Hay Pricing comes it. This app helps farmers and landowners more easily determine hay prices and negotiate sales. Users can also look up historical price information, and estimate a standing value per acre by entering projected yields, cutting schedule and harvest costs.

The app is free to download on Android mobile devices at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.smartmappsconsulting.haypricing.​ For more than 80 additional agriculture app reviews, visit www.AgWebAppFinder.com
