    According to my dad's humongous scale in his woodshop, my bales are about 40 pounds each and, depending on how cold or warm it is, I give my two boys a half to three fourths of a bale in the morning and another half to three fourths in the evening. 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
