Nourishing Your Body

Classes are free!  Preregistration is needed to ensure that there are adequate supplies for each lesson.  Call the Ransom County Extension Service at 701-683-6128 to register.   Get the full schedule here . . .






NDSU FeedList

FeedList Connects Livestock Feed Buyers, Sellers

NDSU’s FeedList helps livestock producers find the extra feed they need.

Wet growing conditions throughout North Dakota have some livestock producers needing additional forage this year.

Farmers and ranchers who have feedstuff such as hay or corn for sale can list it on North Dakota State University’s FeedList database, which is designed to connect feed sellers and buyers. Producers also may list pasture they have for rent.

FeedList, at http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/feedlist, shows what each seller has for sale, how the feed is stored (large round bales, small bales, etc.) and the seller’s contact information. Prospective buyers can select what they want to buy and contact the sellers. Using FeedList is free of charge.

North Dakota producers who want to buy or have feed to sell should contact their county Extension office to have the information added to FeedList. Out-of-state buyers and sellers can use an online form to submit their information.

Buyers and sellers who no longer need FeedList’s services should contact their county Extension office to have the entry removed.

The FeedList Web page also has links to similar services in other states and lists if feedlots are wanted or available and truckers are needed or available for hire.

“People sometimes forget that this isn’t just truckloads of hay,” says Carl Dahlen, NDSU Extension beef cattle specialist. “Rental pastures, custom feeding and other feed sources are welcome and encouraged as part of the list.”

FeedList has been available during feed shortages since the late 1970s.
