WEB SITE OF THE MONTH - Morgan�s Forage Site
Dr. Allen Young

This month�s web site of the month is a site containing market information on forages. This includes hay, silage, and pasture. The site is maintained by the Morgan Consulting Group. The company is �an economic and business research and consulting firm, as well as an Internet publishing and marketing company. Morgan Consulting Group focuses its attention on the agriculture and allied industries. They apply modern communication technology to helping agribusinesses become more profitable through reducing costs, improving efficiencies and expanding markets.� The URL is: www.forage.com

The site contains information on weekly hay prices, availability of forage, conditions affecting the hay crop and summaries that compare prices in different parts of the U.S. They also have regional summaries by state. I clicked on Utah and found graphs that showed 50-year summaries by production (acreage and yield), stocks, prices and pasture information. If you are looking for market information on forages, this is a good place to start.
