    Hey All-

    I was wondering how much straw is needed to do 1000 sq feet with a bale chopper.

    I know it takes about 6 bales to do 1000 without chopper.

    I have 60k to do and don't want to do it all by hand.

    Six bales to 1,000 sqft. All I can say is WOW! You got some small bales out there. Our bales of straw go about 2.5 to 3.5 per 1,000 Sqft with a chopper. Could not tell you by hand. :confused:
    Good Luck
