FEEDLIST - NDSU FeedList - Resource for Buyers and Sellers

The FeedList can help connect producers that are looking for hay and other feedstuffs to those with ample supply. NDSU’s FeedList helps livestock producers find the extra feed they need.Many livestock producers in North Dakota are short on forage following a long, cold winter and late spring that depleted forage supplies says Miranda Meehan, North Dakota State University Extension livestock environmental stewardship specialist. Supplies in some areas have been further exasperated due to low forage production, resulting from cool temperature and drought.Farmers and ranchers who have feedstuff such as hay, cover crops or corn for sale can list it on NDSU’s FeedList website, which is designed to connect feed sellers and buyers. Producers also may list pasture they have for rent.The FeedList, at https://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.

Anyone who wants to buy or receive, or has feed to sell or donate can complete an online form at the site.
