The Big Bale Buddy comes in 3 sizes: the Small fits Bales up to 4' 4" ,the Large fits bale up to 5' 2"  and the Extra Large fits bales up to 6' in diameter.

** Bale sizes vary,  To find the diameter of your bale measure across the flat end of the bale. 

How to Use:

Stand the bale on a flat end and remove all strings and bindings from the Bale.  Then hook the elastic opening over the top edge of the bale all the way around. Next, tug the bag down evenly all the way around the bale until it is completely covered. Then flip the bale over onto its other flat end and tug the elastic up over the edge all the way around so that is pulling in evenly toward the center of the bale. Your hay is now ready to feed. If your bale is loosely rolled and tends to fall apart when the strings are removed, the strings can be cut and taken off as you pull the Big Bale Buddy down.

If you are having trouble getting your Bale Buddy on some hay can be removed from the outside of the bale and stuffed into the top after the feeder is on the bale.
