How much hay?

Per cutting, how much hay can be produced from each acre of ground? Also, what weight per bale would be considered average?

Depends on too many things. A first cutting of heavy grass that's had a lot of water and fertilizer could be over 3 tons per acre. Third cutting in August could be a half ton per acre or a lot less (like dry and brown...).

Weight per bale? Small square bales anywhere from forty to seventy pounds when first baled, a little less when fully dry. Round bales or big square bales can be four hundred to fifteen hundred pounds apiece. Probably could get them even bigger.
