    Default Round bales vs square bales

    Calling all hay gurus can you tell me if there is a nutrition difference between round bales and square bales? Are there benefits to either or are they basically the same hay (if purchased from same farmer) just baled differently?

    If bought from the same hay farmer, same hay just different form.

    If feeding roundbales, though, you may want to have your vet vaccinate for butulism...just in case

    I feed my riding horses round bales. NEVER had a problem. Just so you do not waste your money make sure when you buy the that they were stored indoors and never got WET. There is a lot of waste and if it was stored outside it will have mold.
