$14 million expansion
of Pasco hay export plant
A Japanese company is investing $14 million in the expansion of a hay storage and hay cubing operation at the Port of Pasco's industrial park.
The company, Zen-Noh Hay, ships compressed hay cubes to dairy and beef cattle farmers in Japan and other parts of Asia.
Port Director Jim Toomey told Tri-City Herald alfalfa hay is a major export crop.
About a third of the hay grown in Washington is exported, mostly to Asia.
