How many square hay bales can you fit in your bed

I have an odd question does any one know how many square hay bales you can fit in the back of our trucks? I have plenty of straps to tie them down just want I know how many I can fit in my truck.

Im taking a wild guess and saying roughly mid 20's or 30 at the max.

Are you actually going to load your truck with hay?

Let us know exactly how many you get if you do.

How big is a Square Bail of Hay ?

Thinking on it, isn't a bail of hay rectangular ?

Once you get the size of the bails, measure your bed and determine how many will fit.

Doesnt sound right to me. I think that they are a little wider than 14".

The other measurements sound close enough.

That's what I'm looking for Pcolins ... I knew it could be done just didn't know how many could fit. I wouldn't do more then then top of the cab just in case I have to stop hard to avoid someone pulling on in front of me. Thanks for the answers guys. If I get a call from some one that needs hay ill tacks a picture and post it up on here with how many I got in the bed
