The Hopkins-Rains Hay Show is Soon on the Way

September 24, 2023 – The Hopkins-Rains Hay Show is soon on the way for those who want to learn more about the quality of their hay.  The goal of the hay show is to provide agricultural producers an opportunity to test the quality of their forages and raise scholarships funds for area youth who want to study agriculture.  

Hay samples will be accepted from Monday, September 25th through Friday, September 29th.  In Hopkins County, the samples can be dropped off at the Hopkins-Rains Soil & Water Conservation District located at 530 N. Hillcrest, Suite 2.  In Rains County, the samples can be dropped off at the Agrilife Extension Office located at 410 Tawakoni Drive in Emory.  

The Soil and Water Conservation district will host a BBQ lunch at 11:30 at the Civic Center in Sulphur Springs on Thursday, October 26th.  The top 10 lots will be auctioned off to the highest bidders.  All proceeds and donations to the show are tax deductible.
