How many cows to a round bale of hay?

Hempstead, TX(Zone 8a)

Well, it has been a long time since I have been here to DG's. I let my subscription go unrenewed, and then I went to NY for a month. And then I came back and there was work to be done.

Anyway, I have missed DG's and I am glad to be back.

My qyestion pertains to hay and cows. How many cows to a round bale (5'x5')? We have been blessed with much rain and good growing weather. Tommy, our hay cutter guy, came over yesterday and cut and will be here tomorrow to rake and bale. Last year I miscalculated terribly and ended up having to buy hay (not so good stuff) at a high price. I am located in southeast Texas if that will help in the caluculating.

Thanks for the help
