"Not for Self, but for All" 

Welcome to the National Hay Association Website

  

 The National Hay Association, the national trade association for the U.S. hay industry, works daily within the industry, federal agencies, and the Congress itself to create an environment that benefits hay merchants and the people who depend on hay and straw in their commerce. A non-profit organization, NHA's activities are funded entirely through membership dues. NHA proudly represents hay producers, brokers, dealers and consumers of forage products, as well as disciplines and activities of businesses that provide products and services to the hay industry.



2018 Haymaker Award

John D. Russell


The National Hay Association proudly congratulates John as the recipient of the Haymaker Award.  The award honors members who show outstanding service, dedicated leadership, generous contribution, exceptional performance or inspiring commitments to the NHA and the hay industry.  It is the highest honor that a NHA member can receive.  


John owns and operates JD Russell Hay and Straw.  Neither John  nor his wife Denise came from a farm family. But in 1985 they sowed the seeds of their dream, working together part-time with less than $1500 in equipment. Expanding every year, and paying cash for equipment, the Russell's worked hard until they were able to devote themselves full-time to the business in 1992.   Today with seven children and eight grandchildren so far, the Russell's work together in what John describes as their “family passion” – producing top quality hay and straw for horses.  To John, reputation is more important than profit.  Long-term relationships with customers and vendors are the highest priority.
