I have a neighbor that has come to me stating the my cattle manure is smelling and not allowing her to have coffee on the deck in the mornings. I have put 150 pounds of lime on the pile, (that does not smell) and on the fresh droppings about every other day and still she is not happy. I will be putting it on the alfalfa when the 4th cutting is removed but until then-? The smell is coming from the just dropped stuff and not the old. She has handed a paper with Smelleze info and can not find any ingredient info and what it changes in the soil when put back on the ground. Have e-amiled the company. What I am asking is what do you that run cattle do for the odor issue on your farms? Thanks for the non-smell inputs.

Not a darn thing. She wanted to live in the country, and I will go out on a limb and say that you're operation was there before she was. There is nothing in manure that's going to kill her, I work in a warehouse, and I love to go out in the lot when I come home check the girls and get some fresh air. Next time, remind her that those steaks she buys in the grocery store come from cows.

Tell her to move back to the city or learn to embrace the sight,sounds and odors that rural life offers.Don't cow down to her.

Who was there first?? If you did you have the cows when she got there?? Now if she was there first then maybe she has a leg to stand on unless there are other farms in the area but likely she can only complain about it either have to live with it or move.

Tony W. To answer your Question.....Not a dam thing!!!
I too echo the rest of the Neighbors here!
Tell Her is is Normal Cattle Smells. She had better be glad You don't run Hogs!. Now,,, Move ALL Your Cattle into the Pasture Next to here house. Inform her as others have said, Get a sign Like the one at the bottom of the page here. This is still America and your farm is a working farm,,,if she doesn't like the Smells , She shouldn't have bought a place next to a Farm or ranch that has livestock. City people what nerve!!
Tell her to take a flying hike! You have DONE Nothing Wrong!!!! She is Butting into Affairs that are NONE of her Business!!!!
This Witch has to be shut down NOW.,,, She will continue to needle You every time the wind changes directions or every time harvest time comes and you are combining at 11:00 pm at Nite.
Or when the bull services a cow and their kids see it. Shut this CRAP Down NOW!!!!!!!!!!!
Later,
John A.

Tell her you don't like the way her grass smells when she cuts it. What's she going to do about it? Money smells different to everyone.

Tell her she will get used to it after awhile. Could also maybe give her a tour of your operation. Might enlighten her a little.

As much as I'd like to tell to blow off your neighbor be advised if you do you'd best be ready if she sends the EPA out to "investigate" a potential "source of nutrient runoff". I ran into a dairy guy we got acquainted with when we were still milking through our co-op and he got that visit last fall. Now he has to jump through all the hoops to keep them happy and avoid paying protection to them. I have never regretted leaving the dairy business when we did. They won't say boo about my half dozen stock cows on pasture because I'm not a Confined Animal Feeding Operation.
