NHA Recent News

Welcome to the National Hay Association

 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.

President and First Lady Dan and Kathy Wray invite you to experience the beauty of San Diego and gather again with the NHA family.  It's been too long since we were together!
