Total Number of Animals
The total hay produced and the total market value figures are not publicly available. Information on the total number of acres of hay planted and the average hay harvested per acre is also not publicly available. To identify the information, we first examined government sources such as Bundesriegerung and market research databases for pre-compiled data. This strategy was not successful. Next, we used the Google Translate tool to find the information, but no relevant information was found. We were, therefore, not able to verify the total hay produced figure already entered in the spreadsheet.
