CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY — Several areas of New York are facing drought conditions which have caused dairy farmers to face issues with having enough quality forage for their livestock.
But Cornell Cooperative Extension has created an exchange website to help local farmers find or sell their forage.
To help agricultural producers locate forage to purchase, or for producers that have forage to sell, Cornell Cooperative Extension announces the NYS Forage Exchange website, found at http://nysforageexchange.com.
The NYS Forage Exchange provides a free system to match potential sellers and buyers of forage within New York State. Sellers can easily register within the system and then post the forage they have available to sell. Potential purchasers can browse the advertisements, and then contact the seller through email for additional information or to complete purchase arrangements.
A screencast on how to use the NYS Forage Exchange can be found at https://youtu.be/GNPjSIPLrxM. The video is also available on the Forage Exchange website.
This is a moderated website, so all ad submissions are reviewed for appropriateness before publication on the forage exchange website. The information provided is general and educational in nature. Employees of Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extension do not endorse or recommend any specific product or seller listed on this site.
