If it gets down below fifteen degrees or so at night (pretty dang cold for my area) I'll put out a whole bale. I wish I could just give them round bales, but they like to stomp it down in the mud before they finish it .
do like I did and build some ghetto feeders :) I took seven wooden pallets/skids cut them to 32"s and tie them together around the able... works great... and to slow them down even MORE I put used fish nets over the bales total cost maybe $30 :) Ignore the mess around the bale I haven't drug it lately
