Reading hay threads on here makes me very thankful that we have our own hay fields and put it up ourselves. Of course there is field & equipment maintenance but nowhere near the cost some of you are paying.
Round bales in my area are generally considered "cattle hay" as the quality is generally lacking, less care when they bale - wet or dry, they don't care. I saw one farmer baling in the rain after it had been raining for 4 days straight. I'd be very leery of buying rounds here. It is dirt cheap but really dicey. If I had a round baler, I'd do some for myself to save work but I don't, so small squares it is for me.
