Hey! Where does the hay go?


Employees of Bud’s Feed in Cole Camp load up Ron Henning’s truck Tuesday with leftover hay from the cattle barns on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Henning said they were on load 15 of possibly 120 that they would haul out of the livestock areas after the Fair. He added that this was the 18th year for the company to contract with the MSF to remove hay during and after the Fair.


Using the bucket of a skid steer, an employee of Bud’s Feed tamps down the hay in the back of Tom Hesse’s truck Tuesday. Hesse, the son of owner Linda Hesse, said the hay weighs about three tons per load, making the total removal after the Fair at 360 tons.


The leftover and used hay is removed to the southwest corner of the fairgrounds near the Katy Trail at Clarendon Road. It will be used as free compost and is available to the public. “There’s a mountain of it over there,” Henning said. Hesse added that maintenance workers at the fairgrounds will load the compost, during business hours, for those that need them to.
