From what you are saying- it was pig manure.
NO, IT WAS TREATED FERTILIZER.
"This" is the way it is- we get it.
NO, IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE YOU DO.
If someone posts the fact that it stinks, that's the way it is
IF SOMEONE IS IGNORANT ENOUGH TO IGNORE THE FACTS STATED IN MY LAST POST, THAT IS THE REASON WE DON'T WORK TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY.
There is no intended derogatory statement about the farm.
REALLY... "A 15 ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10"... MAYBE I MISUNDERSTOOD - YOU MUST BE RATING MY PERSONALITY THEN. BEING THAT, THANK YOU, "LESLIE".
At some point, there has to be an admission of the fact that it stinks near the pig farm and folks do not want to know the reasons or hear explanations. It is was it is.
THERE IS ONLY NORMAL FARM ODORS PRESENT AT AND AROUND THE FARM. THE ONLY TIME YOU WOULD NOTICE ANYTHING OTHER THAN THAT, IF IT COMES FROM THE FARM, IS WHEN WE ARE SPREADING FERTILIZER ON THE FIELD. A NECESSITY FOR PREPARING FIELDS FOR SPRING PLANTINGS. WHATEVER... I'VE ALREADY EXPLAINED TOO MANY TIMES... YOU JUST DON'T GET IT.
If a person is nauseous for days at a time, can't sleep or eat due to the odor, they certainly get it...'this is the way it is.'
IF YOU SHOW ME A DOCTOR'S REPORT... EVEN ONE, OF SOMEONE WHO IS "NAUSEOUS FOR DAYS AT A TIME" DUE TO NORMAL FARM ODOR, WHO LIVES IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, BY A REPUTABLE DOCTOR I WILL NEVER POST ON TI AGAIN. (Go ahead, Bob, I know you are searching for a doctor that will write that before you even finish reading this post! hehe).
Sorry but, 'enlightenment' is not going to take the smell away.
I spoke with someone from the [Krochmal] farm today, who informed me that when you saw the truck last week, they intended to spread manure on the field at the Tisbert Farm. She also informed me that they did not end up applying the manure, but she was unsure as to why the application did not happen...
...I can only speculate about why there were numerous trips back and forth and why you would have had an odor.
