paul the original - 6/12/2019 10:17 So how does the economics of that work out.... It looks expespnsive. You will end up with 2 balers, the bandit, 3 tractors, and then the skid steer sand transports to move the bale bundles. To move big bundles of hay around. Wouldn’t a big square baler pencil out better at that point? Or a round baler? Are you selling small squares for a premium to horse folk, I can see where it is at then I guess. Not trying to be nosey or negative, just curious. Paul



Hi Paul - 

We already have a big round baler, and we put up several thousand rounds a year.  The only way this makes sense is because of the premium we can get for small square bales.  A 4x5 big bale that weighs 1000 pounds sells here for $60.00.  The same 1000 pounds of hay sold in small square bale form will bring in $168.00 (21 X $8).
