AFIA Hay Competition


Guess the Crude Protein / Guess the Bale Weight

Enter our two competitions and put your skills to the test! Enter now for a chance to win a premium hay corer by guessing the weight of a hay bale and the crude protein content in our hay samples.

In the crude protein guessing competition, take a look at our provided hay sample and make an educated estimation of its crude protein content and metabolisable energy.  The closest answer will win the prize. Hint: greener and more pungent hay is associated with higher crude protein content.

For the hay bale weight competition, show off your estimation skills and submit your best guess. Guess as close as you can to the actual weight, and the participant with the most accurate guess will take home the prize.
