Fig 01- Sold in-front of the farmer market

I saw in the small farmer market not in great number of hay stacks, may be not sold for farmers or ranchers, but for individuals for decoration purposes only during any special days.

Another reason that hay sold in the “small amount” for who feed their pets such as:

- rabbit

- deer

- other “small size” pets

Fig 03- Lighter hay, I think

In the market, I found square hay only, no round bales. The size might be 40 pounds (20 kg), not that big and heavy.

It is might be due to storage capacity of market or no storage at all.

But, I just get new knowledge that other function of hay stacks is for erosion control or for landscaping called as a straw hay.

  1. ...#1 looks like straw and #3 looks life hay. The large round bales are so heavy that they need to moved with a loader.

  2. Very good to have..especially for strawberry plants in winter.

  3. I knew a person who had her newly built house insulated with bales of hay.
