    More handling tips.

    Fresh hay bales will bounce and roll a lot when rolled off a pickup. Be careful if you are on even a slight incline. I've seen folks chase after bales as they were rolling downhill into creeks. Bales that have been stored for a few months will have a flat spot on the bottom making it much harder to roll by hand.

    To solve the unload by hand get a bobcat that's what we did.. way easier. Or buy squares bales. .

    Would you suggest putting it in an area of the pasture that gets the most sunlight? ... thought this would be a good idea to help keep it dry

    In the winter it doesn't much matter. Actually, wind dries it faster than sun. After it's wet, strong sun heats it up and makes mold grow faster.
