Help! Foul smelling hay

11 years ago

I just don't know what to do. I live across from a chicken farm and the owner recently got some cows.

I can handle chicken smells, cow smells and have been for a year with no problems.

A few months ago the farmer brought in these HUGE round hay bales and put them near my property line.

They small really really bad. Like your standing in the middle of the local dump. A real sour smell. I'd hoped the smells would go away at some point but they have not.

I'm thinking of selling my house.

Is it normal for round bales of hay to smell so bad? I mean REALLY REALLY bad? Is there any info I can pass on to the farmer? Is he buying bad hay?

He has them wrapped in white plastic.
