CASPER (AP) — Three Wyoming hay producers from Wheatland have placed in the top five in the alfalfa hay division at the 2013 World Ag Expo Forage Challenge this winter.
In the alfalfa hay division, first place went to David Hinman of Hardrock Farms in Wheatland; second place went to Daryl Tiltrum of Dipper Tree Sheep in Wheatland; and fifth place went to Kelli Hinman, also from Wheatland.
Finalists were chosen from more than 90 entries submitted from the western United States. The competition challenged farmers to see who produced the highest-quality forage in the West.
Wyoming producers have consistently won or placed high for the last few years in both the World Ag Expo and the World’s Forage Analysis Superbowl in Wisconsin.
