The entry deadline for the Texas Oklahoma Fair Hay Show has been extended until August 31. All hay must have been harvested in Archer, Clay, Wilbarger or Wichita counties in Texas or Cotton, Tillman, Jefferson and Jackson counties in Oklahoma during calendar year 2012. Entries may be either conventional, rectangular bales or large packages. No haylage will be exhibited.

Exhibitors are limited to two entries per class and no more than one entry per field, per cutting may be made.

Final placing of each class will be based on the results of the laboratory analysis (90 percent) and subjective evaluation, texture, odor, purity and color (10 percent).

Classes include: small and large bales in legumes, cool season grasses, warm season grasses, grass and legume mix plus wheat hay.

Entry forms are available at and must be returned to your nearest Extension office. Sampling of the hay will be reviewed by each county’s respective Extension staff.
