This year take some time to enter your hay into the Hay King/Queen Contest at the Grant County Fair. The Hay King/Queen Contest is a good way to showcase the high quality hay industry of Grant and Adams counties. Remember, big bale entries are welcome. Details of the Hay King Contest are on pages 53 and 54 of the 2013 Grant County Fair Exhibitor Guide, “Hot Summer Fun”, which is available at the fair office, the WSU Grant-Adams Area Extension office, and gcfairgrounds.com.
The Grant County Hay King Contest is sponsored by the MidColumbia Basin Hay Growers Association. Big bale entries are accepted in all but the Feed Store Alfalfa class. Deliver hay entries to Ag Building #15 (enter via purple gate; west side) between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 10. Questions may be directed to Kirk Jungers, Superintendent of the Grant County Hay King Contest, at 509-760-3501.
Extension programs and employment are available to all without discrimination. Evidence of noncompliance may be reported through your local Extension office.
