Wisconsin hay shortage

A Door County farmer Is grateful to have survived a hay shortage in Wisconsin this winter. Wisconsin farmers had a hard time keeping hay bails dry in the fall due to flooding. This has caused a shortage in what is available for livestock feed this winter. Rich Olson owns Olson Family farms in Southern Door County and he says that he has seen other farmers struggle to find hay at a reasonable price. Olson was lucky enough to have enough hay both for himself and to sell to other local farmers.

 

 

Many Wisconsin farmers have had to go outside of Wisconsin for hay or pay a premium for it within the state.
