Hay is in short supply in some parts of Saskatchewan, and you may be wondering how to connect with producers who have hay for sale. As of March 31, 2017, Saskatchewan Agriculture has discontinued the Forage, Feed and Custom Services Listing site. While more traditional methods such as the local paper or word of mouth might still work, consider looking to one of the other online resources for hay sales:

Kijiji  tends to have many listings of hay and other feeds for sale, as well as buyers looking for hay

Internet Hay Exchange has listings in Canada and the US

Facebook has a Hay/Feed for Sale in Saskatchewan & Manitoba page that you may want to join.

Alberta Agriculture has Hay, Straw and Pasture listings at:https://www.agric.gov.ab.ca/app68/hay, as well as advice on fraud awareness when purchasing feed

The Manitoba Hay Listing Service from Manitoba Agriculture has a search feature so you can locate feed close to your area.

When searching for hay, be aware that there is no standard way that hay for sale is listed. It may be in short tons or metric tonnes, cents per pound or often by the bale. Be sure to ask what the bale weights are, and to ask for feed analysis to be sure the hay you buy will meet the needs of you livestock.
