    Default How big is hay bale?

    I am adding a hay storage to existing barn and it will be basically a cube 10x10x8 feet - how many square bales is gonna fit there?

    Somebody told me 16'x18"x48" - is it correct?

    Thank you
    Regards,

    The bales vary in size. I have a 20x40 run in shed with one end boarded up that we store the hay in. It's about 20x10x10 plus the peak. We can usually get around 250 regular sized (60-80lbs) bales in there stacked to the roof.

    Thanks, spark_man, that gives me some clue.


    How was the joke?

    You may be a redneck when you know how many bales of hay your car will hold

    Impossible -- you can't even begin to think about being a redneck until you have a pickup for the hay.

    You can store 4 tons of hay in a 12x12 stall. The number of actual bales varies greatly depending on which bailer was used and how it was adjusted.

    I once put 15 in a Ford Aerostar minivan ;-)

    AND

    I loaded 54 on a Chevy crew-cab, dually.

    Spark_man:

    Only 54 on a CHEV dully. My old Ford F150 would hold 75 on average. We maxed out at 85 one trip. Never again...
