When California hay purchasers buy hay from OrganicHays.com, they pledge their commitment to battle rising hay prices by bringing more competition to the California market. Between 2007 and 2012 the exportation of hay rose to 3.8 million tons. By 2013, the hay exportation market rose to over 1 trillion dollars. Over 99% percent of that hay was exported from all ports in California, Oregon, and Washington. It does not appear that this trend will change! Experts all agree that, as this trend continues, grass hays from the states of Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, and Utah will feel the same effect that California has felt over the last five years.
