I've been just letting this one go for a little bit, just to see what gets posted. You guys are right, I am pretty small. 20 head of sheep and goats, and am looking at 10 to 15 head of Dexters. I don't round bale, and my square baler is nearly as old as I am. I don't have a silo either, but was looking at a narrow trench or bunker. This is all just brainstorming at the moment anyway, looking at alternatives. Spring cutting is always a challenge to get in, and silage seemed like a way to avoid problems.

You will have too much waste with a small bunker or trench. Round bale silage with individual bags or wrapped. Hire it baled.

The problem with the wrapping suggestions is money and time. The few custom wrappers in my area charge an arm and both legs, and they aren't any too quick about showing up. Then there's the cost of the plastic and getting rid of it. For rounds you need a silage baler, not just any old baler will do.
Seems like there's always a downside to any idea.
