Local 'Hay' Day
Oil isn't the only booming business in North Dakota - local farmers are selling their extra hay to farmers in southern states, Dave Schmidt, Belfield, said, and they can't make enough of it.
"We have shipped out a hundred loads so far," Schmidt said. "They don't care if it is round bales or square bales. They want it."
It has been a good year for cutting hay, giving farmers a surplus, Bobby Kubas, South Heart, said. He added people selling cattle is also a factor.
