Feeding round bales

I have fined my mare round bales for yrs and works great for us. I am curious do others take off net wrap or leave it on??

My barn takes them off so there isn't a risk of a horse getting tangled in it.

We feed round bales and yes we take off the netting to risky not too. Our bales are put in feeders so less waste.

The netting gets taken off of ours too.

I leave the netting on mine. Without it, even in a feeder, much of the bale is lost to the wind. I just make sure to pick up the old netting when I put a new bale out.

Ours only have strings around them, so we take them off. We keep out rounds inside and on pallets until they're used, so no need for netting.

We like net wrapped rolls because all the goodies stay in. But it comes off when the round bale is put in the pasture.

Our hay guy just dumps the bales in the pasture we want them in. We don't have a tractor or a forklift so we can't put them where we want them ourselves, and it's the best option for us.

We do not use feeders as wastage doesn't bother us!

We take the wrapping off. Be careful if you don't as I've seen horses get it stuck between their teeth and cut their gums.
