Round Bales

  1. Round bales are now the standard. They have won out over the older style of cube bales.

  2. 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!

  3. I guess they are easier to form etc.

  4. 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.

    1. These bales are wrapped in plastic, I believe. Round bales are common now because one person can do the whole operation.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
