Hay and Forage Division Goals and Issues

Goals of the Hay and Forage Division are determined by a state committee, which is elected by other producers throughout the state.

Issues and challenges facing producers are evaluated each year, and priority is placed on each to determine a focus for the division's efforts. Goals include:

  • Work with area organization directors and county boards to maintain and increase county committees to at least 50.
  • Work with Auburn University, power companies and other groups to secure funding for biomass and renewable energy research and development.
  • Promote hay and forage testing for deermining value of hay and forage crop for sale as well as feeding.
  • Promote use of straw and less desirable hay for erosion control on construction projects.
  • Increase affilate membership with American and Forage Grassland Council.

Helping farmers address everyday problems is a key part of our mission. As new challenges appear, Alabama Hay & Forage Producers is poised to addres those for the good of its producer members.
