This net is made to hold a standard 95 pound 2-tie bale, or a 120 pound 3-tie bale (West Coast Bale) or 1½ full sized compressed bales. There will be extra material left over if using a local 40-60 pound bale. This net has a cinch rope on the opening of this net witch will allow the user to suspend a full size bale within a stall, from a tree, or from the side of your horse trailer. Customers that have the wooden or plastic slow feed boxes with the wire mesh, have been converting to this net. They are putting the net & bale in the box and securing the net with the draw rope and tail rope using carabiner.
