This hay room is in an old horse stall, so the partition was already there. When you cut the hay strings, the bales don’t come apart because of the wall.
It’s also nice to lean against or catch your balance when you’re pulling bales to the top of the stack. They weigh around 100 pounds each.
I can stack four of them while standing on the floor but must stand on one of them to lift them any higher. The top of the sixth bale, on the right in the following photo, is about eight feet up.
The capacity of this area is 30 bales. They are stacked on pallets.
Each bale contains 15 to 18 flakes.
