Southeastern Hay Contest
The 2022 top prize for the Southeastern Hay Contest goes to Beeson Farms in Climax, NC! Their alfalfa hay nearly broke the scale at an RFQ of 357! As the overall winner, Beeson Farms receives a choice of the use of a new Massey Ferguson DM Series disc mower or RK Series rotary rake for the 2023 hay production season plus $2,000 in cash! The Southeastern Hay Contest award ceremony was held at the Sunbelt Ag Expo, where winners were announced on October 18, 2022.
Producers faced many tough choices in the hayfield this year, with record fertilizer and diesel prices along with weather challenges across the southeast, making their accomplishments that much more incredible.
