DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa's top agriculture official says hay and straw producers should be sure to keep their information on a state directory updated to help market their products.

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey says with the continued tight supply of forage crops used for livestock feed, the Iowa Hay and Straw Directory is a critical link for buyers and sellers.

The listing is available to interested buyers throughout the nation. Only sellers from within Iowa are on the list.

The information may be accessed and updated on the IowaAgriculture.gov website.
