Has anyone used the Hay Hut in a turnout with small square bales? Any success?

The thing besides price that would concern me is the ones I have seen are dark in color and I would think they would be like a sauna when the sun warms them up.

I think it would be very successful with square bales.

I just spent part of the day cleaning up the mess from this winter round bales and a Hay Hut is on my list of things to get before next winter. It would pay for itself with less waste.

Yes; done it frequently, with no issue.

Easiest way to do it is to pile up the bales with the string on, then hoist the "egg" over the stacked bales with the tractor bucket or bale spike, then snip and remove the strings if you can.

If you don't have a tractor, site the "egg," then hand-heft the flakes of hay into it.

Method A is easier. ;)
