20131022_213503This evening my wife and I attended the 2013 Floyd Smith Memorial Hay Show at the Kaufman County Fair Grounds.  We had placed one of currently owned 5 X 6 Rolls of hay for analysis and judging for the event.  We are proud to announce as the only out of county entry from Henderson County, we placed “Second” in this event in the category of “Other Bermuda Grass.”  Pictures of the actual analysis sheets will be posted tomorrow.  Our actual % of CP came to 12.9.  We were within a whisker of the first place winner. There were 13 entries in our category.  For newbie farmers in the East Texas area we are very proud and thankful for our placement for our fine hay which is currently for sale at $70 a roll.
