Hay, hay, hay — new for this year at the San Juan County Fair. Consider entering your hay or grain in the San Juan County Fair Grains and Forage Department and get a free quality analysis! If you plan to enter a sample of your hay or grain in the county fair you can be reimbursed $40 to offset shipping and analysis costs for your forage. Simply sample your crop, mail it in for testing and submit the results with your physical entry. You’ll be reimbursed when fair premium checks are disbursed. Need help sampling?
