Metadata[+] Show full item record
The large round bale, as used in forage production, is a highly mechanized, labor-efficient system for harvesting and handling your forage. The large round bale system is basically a one-man operation. Large round bales will weigh 500 to 3,000 pounds with dimensions varying with the baler manufacturer and model. Usually the bales are 5 to 7 feet long and 5 to 7 feet in diameter. Bale weight depends not only on dimensions but also on the type and quality of hay baled.
