Utah farmers are busy fulfilling demand in China for massive amounts of hay. KSL-TV says the export of Utah hay is an industry worth tens-of-millions of dollars every year. One farm owner says the Chinese lack the large acreage plots needed to grow and harvest the hay so they go to the U.S. for help. In 2012 an estimated 460-thousand tons of hay were exported from Utah. This year that’s number’s expected to increase to 600-thousand tons.
