Where we live about the only hay available is in great big round bales, not the smaller rectangles we used to feed. My neighbor tells me they set the round bales outside in the weather and the goats eat the hay from the bale. Has anyone every fed hay this way? I would think it would mold when it gets wet and that they would stomp all over it. These bales are huge, like 500 pounds! Can you pull some off every day and put it in a feeder or is that not possible? He thinks I'm being silly wanting to put little bits of fresh hay is a covered feeder every day. What do you think?
