"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.

Congratulations to the NHA 2017 Haymaker of the Year

The National Hay Association wishes to offer congratulations to Raymond Jacob Bricker who was named the Haymaker of the Year at the 2017 Annual Convention held last week in Canandaigua, NY!

Raymond and his family moved to their farm in Salem, Ohio, in 1970.  He has been growing and selling hay since then and he joined the National Hay Association in the 1990's.  Raymond and his late wife Becky have three sons, Tim, Ted and Rob and two grandchildren, Hannah and Sam.

Raymond has served on countless committees during his years with the NHA and he served as President of the Association in 2004.  

The Haymaker of the Year Award goes to the NHA member that has been outstanding in representing the hay industry.
