Standlee Hay hauls the majority of its hay, using our own equipment, sets of doubles, wiggle wagons, and flat beds. We haul hay from all areas of the Western United States. During harvest as many as 85 trucks will cross the Standlee Hay Company scales in a single day.
Loads vary from 38 to 46 large bales, equaling 106,000 to 125,000 lbs per load. Drivers load the trucks in the hay fields and the trucks are unloaded at the Standlee Hay plant by skilled personnel.
