A new Purdue University website offers growers and livestock producers a place to buy and sell forages.
The website, Forage Finder, is free to use.
"Many websites like this give a listing of what's available from A to Z. But here, buyers can select what forages they are really interested in," says Keith Johnson, Purdue Extension agronomist. "It also gives buyers the option to search a radius of how far they're willing to travel."
Buyers also can search for straw from oats, rye, barley and wheat.
Search results can be narrowed even further for bale type, price, cut and forage analysis.
Site listings are automatically deleted after 30 days to make sure the site has up-to-date information. Sellers can renew their listings if forages haven't sold within those 30 days.
