Re: [RC] How do I feed 900 lb square bales? - Steph Teeter

Strapping to the front bucket works (we use a chain). if you can find a round bale feeder (cattle supply store) it will make it last a lot longer. If you do end up feeding them out by hand, keep one string tied around the entire bale so it doesn't fall open. i.e. just let one flake loose at a time.

Yesterday, while I was training/riding, my wonderful better half brought home 7 900 lb square bales on our flat bed trailer. We cant figure out the best way to use them.
I cant spear them with either of our two tractors. Strap to front bucket maybe?
Muddy pasture is a problem.
How do people feed these things, short of breaking them up and feeding them by hand?
thanks for any input.
