I could not imagine beginning to tackle that much hay, but if one has the proper equipment, it isn't much of a chore I guess. Did your haying operation expand over many years? I ask cuz this region is becoming more urbanized and farmers are being pushed off of their land because of expanding cities. My county has a very large number of horse owners, and they prefer square bales. Most cattle farmers have switched to round bales, so the horse folks seem to bew having a tougher time finding what they want in square bales.

This is the replacement. We have expanded over 14 years after my dad sold the dairy cows and my mom built her horse stable
