I would sell it and buy new. We feed a lot of round bales with a pitch fork every year to small pens. Just unwind it and fork it in. Usually a 4x5 round bale will feed a ewe for a winter.

Not sure what breed your looking for but have a group of polypays being bred right now. If you don't find anything.

Polypays are actually what I’m leaning towards. We rent land from a former sheep farmer who had Finn/Rambouillet crosses so he’s dealt with something similar to polys. Unfortunately he’s 30 years removed from raising them so I wouldn’t expect him to be super up to date, but he is a good and helpful resource.

I may actually be very interested in what you have as by the time they’re born I would be able to run them on our pasture instead of having to lamb and feed them in the dead of winter.

My contact info is in my profile if you would be willing to reach out when you get a chance and send me your info.
