You'd really have to take a sample and have it tested to know... Without a picture or analysis it's hard to say. A picture can give an idea of quality, but again, still hard to say for sure. If it looks like straw, it doesn't sound all that great. But a round bale can be any mix of grasses or alfalfa, 'round bale' is not a term encompassing all hay types :) it's merely a shape. Hope that helps!
