Wyo. Waives Oversize Fees For Hay Trucks

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — With the homegrown hay crop hit hard by drought, Wyoming is waiving fees for oversize loads of hay coming into the state.

The waiver went into effect Monday and will continue as long as drought disaster designations expire or until Dec. 31.

Wyoming ranchers are looking for hay elsewhere since the state is facing one of its worst hay harvests in terms of acreage in nearly 80 years.

Hay is Wyoming’s biggest cash crop and is suffering the most from a lack of rain earlier in the season.

If hay acreage estimates hold, the 2012 hay crop could be the worst since the Dust Bowl days of 1934.

Gov. Matt Mead has requested federal agricultural disaster designations for all but one Wyoming’s 23 counties.
