If you want to minimize waste with round bales, put the bale on a couple pallets to keep it off the ground, use a (horse) hay ring, and rake up any hay thrown out and toss it back in the ring everyday (for those horses that love to toss their hay around). Even in wet, muddy weather, we have very little waste and with 4 mares, round bales are almost a 50% cost savings over squares.
