"Square" bales of straw, two different sizes
It's haying and straw baling season and has been since the crops have been ready to cut. Do you know the difference between straw and hay?
STRAW: the stalks of grain products - such as wheat, oats, rye - after the grain has been harvested. It contains few seeds so is not nutritious for animals but does make good mulch and bedding material.

"Round bales of hay
HAY: grasses - such as timothy - or legumes - such as alfalfa - baled for animal feed. The more protein the hay contains, the more valuable it is.
