Hay Testing Requested at Western Kentucky Fair

Due to the severe drought in the area, some local farmers’ hay may be ruined.

Senator Joey Pendelton requested the Kentucky Department of Agriculture provide a hay testing unit to be available at the Western Kentucky Fair for farmers who’d like to test the quality of their hay.

The unit will allow farmers to see if more grain is needed to supplement feed and ensure their livestock receive enough protein.

Pendelton requested the hay testing unit be available at the Western Kentucky Fair in Hopkinsville, on July 3 - 4, 2007.
