As you know round bales left out in the winter loses 50% of the nutrients. You could cover the hay horse feeder with a large tarp tying it all around the top with string(in the holes of the tarp). Another thing you have to think about tho is water collecting on the tarp,try to get it has tight as you can,or if you have a open pole barn you could just put the round hay rack in on end of the barn and replace when needed.

the haycrib system seems to be the best way to keep hay in feeder dry and out of the snow and rain it easly straps on any round bale feeder on the market shedds rain and snow and weighs under 70 lbs it can be left on the feeder and tipped over with feeder .......tough as nails
