Hi. Sorry to be late in responding, but was out of the office for meetings last week. You might check the www.hayfinder.org web site and then call growers to see what they have. Check with the local feed stores around Bend, or other towns nearby. High Desert Organix in Madras would have composted manures and other composted materials. Check the farmers column in the local newspapers and also check Craig's List.
