We get our cheap round bales (discount price since it's the BO's land but she doesn't bale it) and square bales. For our round bales, we just use the skid-loader with the bucket, have someone roll it into the bucket and have two of us up in the loft to direct the driver and to roll them back to store. We have more room than you would since we have over double your stalls, but the run in would probably split into about 4-5 stalls where the loft is..so I would assume you could fit about 40-50 round bales in your loft if you flipped and manuevered them like we did, lol.
We just roll one off the loft, roll to desired spot, cut the twine, unroll, fork hay into bale feeder or into field, and roll bale back to the desired spot. :p But free-choice is so much easier, lol. Roll bale to desired spot in field (or dump off trailer/truck/skidloader), cut twine, and you're ready to roll, ha.
