Those bales do look smaller, maybe 4' diameter. If they were 5's, it would be a 30' trailer. Doubt they weigh more than 800 lbs each whatever they are, so just under 20,000 lbs not including the trailer. If it is a 24' trailer and there's a course of six bales, then they may be closer to 650 lbs or so, just a guess since I don't make anything as small as a 4 x 4 bale. They don't overhang the sides so that's a good clue as to length. That trailer does look a bit anemic, but hard to tell on a phone.
Anyway, it's a nice load, and these are killer trucks. Hauling around the farm, we would definitely put one more course down the middle. If it were my assistant, he'd squeeze another 12 of em just because he can
Spring is so slow this year, even here in NC we are at least 10 days off of typical grass growth, so lots of cattlemen are buying hay.
This week will change everything. Amazing how much weather like this can affect a farm operation. Two weeks of extra feed can mean thousands in hay costs, depending on the size of a herd.
Thanks for posting. So I could run my mouth about a dang load of hay.
