Compare round hay bales to rectangular ones for volume. For direct comparison set them side by side and eyeball them. A tarp laid over each bale and marked for size might work for indirect comparison though this is surface area so I’m not sure it works. I don’t have a good thought on this one. Direct measurement might involve baling twine to compare length, height and width/diameter of the bales. indirect measurement would involve using the formulas and actual measures.
