Hay is grass, clover, alfalfa or other plants cut and dried for use as food for livestock. Of the top 10 agricultural commodities grown in Colorado, growing hay ranks 5th. It generates more money than the sale of wheat, hogs, eggs or potatoes. Why is hay such a large part of Colorado agriculture? It is because we have a lot of livestock in Colorado.
