'Hey, hay growers...it's okay to be square! (or even round)'
With the Gillespie County Hay Show just around the corner, rules and regulations have been announced.
Deadline for entering this year’s show is Friday, Aug. 1.
Square bales may be entered in Fredericksburg at Beyer Feed and Fertilizer, 3446 N. State Highway 16, and Lochte Feed and General Store, 509 Longhorn Street.
Also, entries can be left at Allied Ag in Stonewall and Behrends Feed and Fertilizer in Luckenbach.
There is no charge for the first bale but there is a $10 fee for each additional bale.
Round bales must be delivered to Beyer’s Feed and Fertilizer.
Round bales need to be close to full sized bales so Beyer can utilize standard hay equipment to transport bales, it was announced.
