Missouri Department of Natural Resources has released results of the hay lottery for farmers who signed up last week for the drawing.
The 17 winners receive a permit from the DNR allowing them to cut and harvest hay at selected state parks and conservation areas for three months.
According to the DNR drought assistance website, a Pollock farmer will obtain hay from Pershing State Park near Laclede. Hay at Crowder State Park near Trenton goes to a farmer from Eugene, Missouri. Haying privileges at the Wallace State Park near Cameron have been won by a farmer from Russellville. A farmer from Edina won the hay lottery at Long Branch State Park near Macon and a Carrollton farmer will travel to Ha Ha Tonka State Park south of Camdenton for hay.
