round bales for mulching

buretachi(z6 PA)August 1, 2005

how many feet do you get out of an unrolled bale? how thick is a layer and what size bales are manageable?

You have to have a way to handle them, like a big tractor with a front end loader, old mulch hay falls apart but not easily enough, you really need a powered unroling device. If you can get them loaded hauled and the like ylu can use them one way or another , bales are easier
