If its any help we fit about 50 small bales in a space 8x12 and stacked to about 8 foot (which would be about the height you would have at the front tho you'd have more space in the apex)

Are you looking at open fronted (I'm thinking of the farm plus type of wooden open fronted 3 bay type) or enclosed with ventilation built in?

I had the dimensions/volume of a small bale somewhere, and you could work it out storage needed from that...but just measure the length x width x depth x 700. I'd go and measure one here but it's still raining! Rare breed, free range.
