Round bales are now the standard. They have won out over the older style of cube bales.
Yup, Andy's right. That's about all we see around here - round bales. When I was a teen, I worked one summer on a farm run by a sadistic farmer and he put me on the back of a baler. Lordy, that was an awful job and then he screwed me on my wages. Went to church every Sunday, too. Aargh!
I guess they are easier to form etc.
They've been around (no pun intended) for quite a while, the latest thing is that they are wrapped in plastic. Very efficient, but not very natural looking.
These bales are wrapped in plastic, I believe. Round bales are common now because one person can do the whole operation.
I think you can leave a round bale in the field, and then open it for the cows to feed upon at need. Saves that trip to the haymow. A boy or man could heft a square bale, which might weigh up to 100 lbs, but not a round bale. To move a round bale there is an attachment, likely has a name, like a javelin on the rear of the tractor, that has hydraulics to lift the bale.
We still use the small bales for the horses but once in awhile will buy a round on just to leave out in the pasture.MB
