Bales of Hay in the Garden of England


The History of Round Bales – It all started in 1892 when Hugh Luebbens and sons fabricated a stationary baler that wrapped hay into small round bales.  To their delight, many farmers learned that round bales shed rain like thatched roofs.  The Australian Econ Fodder Roller baler that made a 300-lb ground-rolled bale. It was patented by P. J. Avery in 1983.

Rapid adoption of large round bales came within three years.  It was made possible because farm tractors were already equipped with cabs. Three-point hitches and front-end loaders equipped with grapple forks were available for handling and feeding large bales.

It was cost and labour effective because large bales are untouched by human hands – a 16 year old could bale 115 tons of large round bales each day and never break a sweat!
