So we have always fed the round bales to our cattle and used the round hay rings. But I have noticed more and more large square bales being transported on the roads here in Indiana. We have a lot of waste from the round bales, between where they sit outside and then moving them to the cattle. Our bales usually weigh between 1300-1700 #'s. This next summer we will have to start buying hay (first time for us) and I was wanting to get input on what y'all think are the pros and cons of the large square bales. Obviously, I will need to buy an attachment for the tractor, but other than that, what do you think? What is the average weight, how many small squares make up a large bale, can you bust a large one and feed it by flake to individual cows instead of buying the small squares, etc. Thanks for any input!
