How many Angus cross ( what is the actual cross ) cows, calves ( age, weight,weaned ), and bulls are being fed ? What is the actual composition of the "hay " ( grass, clover, aflalfa or mix ) at what stage of maturity was it cut, percentage of weeds, and what is the actual nutrition value (TDN ) of the "hay " ?

it's just a very large Hay Bale
Big rounds--squares--rectangles?
I've seen plenty of 1200-1400 round bales..baled, described and sold by that nomenclature...never heard them called "Mega Hay Bales".
Is it just a marketing term..a regional description of the size and weight?

Boss- They are all a mix of Angus, Beef master, and Santa Gertrudias. the entire herd is being fed on that hay. The bales are a mixture of Clover, Canary grass, and local grasses. could not tell you what stage of maturity at which it was cut nor percentage of weeds. the TDN couldn't tell you that either. What i know of it is that the herd can't get enough of it.

Greybeard - These are 6' diameter round bales weighing in at about 2200 lbs each. They are baled off of a John Deere 568 baler
