Lets talk bag sizes
Lets talk about Hay Burners Equine LLC slow feed hay net bag sizes
We have removed the word “bale” from most of the bag sizes, this word seemed to cause too much confusion even with the descriptions of which each size bag held for hay noted. Part of the underlying problem is hay bale sizes vary quite a bit depending on the part of the country the bales were produced.
You will see we use “roughly” and “about” a lot – that’s because hay varies that much when baled due to compaction/type of forage/baler.
The netting varies from mesh size to mesh size & how hard you pull to the netting to measure it. Bags are not measured in the relaxed state.
