BELMONT, N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension is excited to announce the release of the New York Equine Hay Survey.
Attention horse owners and hay producers! The Equine Subgroup of the statewide CCE Livestock Program Work Team wants your assistance in understanding hay sales and purchases within the state for horses.
This research study, a partnership with Cornell and Penn State Equine Extension, covers the following objectives:
- Characterize hay buying & feeding practices of New York horse owners and preferences impacting these practices.
- Determine current hay prices and explore how different factors affect them
- Characterize hay producer preferences and practices regarding marketing and selling hay to horse customers
- Compare forage testing knowledge and attitudes among horse owners and hay producers
- Determine need and desire for extension hay education for horse owners and horse hay producers
The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Please give us your input as we seek to collect data on the NY Equine Hay Industry. Your anonymous responses will help us understand the needs of both horse hay buyers and producers and develop appropriate educational products. Exclusively for New York residents, the QR Code and link for the survey may be found on our website at: www.ccelivestock.com/species/
