WHO WE ARE
The Oregon Hay and Forage Association is a group of forage producers, agribusiness representatives, researchers and extension agents dedicated to promoting the forage industry in Oregon.
To serve as the sole voice for forage focused agriculture in Oregon in order to educate the policy makers and the public.
To work with other agriculture organizations, i.e. Oregon Cattlemen’s Association, Farm Bureau, and Oregonians for Food and Shelter.
To support education, research and technical assistance which promotes the environmentally sustainable production of forages and agriculture.
To promote networking and marketing among forage producers, buyers, exporters and advisors, so producers will gain marketing advantages for their forages.
All people interested in forages are invited to join with us by contacting your nearest Oregon Hay & Forage Association representative listed. Membership in your local affiliate entitles you also to be a member of OHFA. Dues range from $45-$100. Click here for more information on membership.

Polycoms Make Attending OHFA State Board Meetings Easy
Mylen Bohle, with the Central Oregon OSU Extension Service, coordinates the state board meetings via Polycoms. They are available in each region by contacting your local extension service. With the Polycoms, we can see and hear you, and you can see and hear us. They are easy to connect up. The Polycoms would allow any affiliate president and board members, and any other interested OHFA members to participate, when a particular state board meeting is too far away to travel to because of time and expense. As long the Polycom room is available and reserved ahead of time in an affiliate’s county Extension office, then every affiliate should be able to attend the meetings.
