You should be able to bale hay with it. The problem will be moving short stem hay 2-3 months later if it is not net wrapped. The method that this baler makes a bale works better in long stem grass like fescue, orchard grass, etc. Without a netwrap you will have to use a bale mover that goes under the bale. The bales will fall apart with a bale spear unless you used mega plastic twine or netwrap. You do not have as much problems with the longer stem hay. It can be done but you will have some problems moving older short stem hay.
