I’ve finally looked at the local Craigslist ads and I think it will be a dangerous thing for me!
Our first purchase was about 50 bales of moldy hay for fifty cents a bale. A storm a few weeks ago ripped a roof off a hay shed and soaked the hay – it started molding, so it was on a fire sale. I know that moldy hay can be dangerous to the lungs, so I decided to store it outside, rather than bring it into a confined space and since it will be used for garden mulch, outside storage won’t hurt it for that use. I might throw a tarp over it. It spent a couple of days drying out on hay wagons before I stacked it.
