The heavy rain and flooding that impacted South Carolina last week ruined tens of thousands of hay bales, according to extension agents around the Southeast. This is hay that livestock producers were counting on to feed their livestock through the winter. Now these farmers will have to look for quality hay to replace what was destroyed by the flooding.
Clemson University Cooperative Extension is compiling a “2015 Flood Relief Hay List” that will provide contact information on anyone who has undamaged hay for sale. The results of the list will be posted online at Livestock and Forages Extension and Outreach Programs. You can read more about it at Southeast Farm Press here.
