I unroll hay out to the larger groups and just set a roll out to small ones. I can’t quantify a savings in unrolling cause there is some waste to it too, but I do believe it does save in that they have more area to eat and more cattle get an opportunity to eat. I would have to put out more rolls at time for them to all get around and it seems when I do that they vacuum it all pretty quickly and Trample a lot of it too
Saturday hay feeding while it was 60.
Today snow from yesterday was leaving and round 35.

An old timer near us used to unroll round bales on a slope, them put a single strand of electric wire down the middle with temporary posts to prevent the cows from trampling and pooping on the hay.
