    I am currently bidding on grading and re-seeding a subdivisions play yard for thier assocciation. I am planning on covering the new seed with hay to help protect it from rain run-off and from hungry birds. It is two acres, so I plan on using a straw blower to distribute the hay around the property.

    What I need to know is, how many bales of hay will I need? How do you guys calculate this?
