Michigan Farmer Builds Cow Manure Wall To Spite Neighbor
When life hands you cow manure, make a wall out of it. Said no one ever. Except for one Michigan man.
A farmer in Lodi Township created a 250-foot long wall of cow manure to divide his property from his neighbors after a property line dispute.
Really, a wall of cow manure? Wouldn't a fence be more aesthetically pleasing? Not to mention, smell nicer.
Wayne Lambarth's grandfather developed the farms land 100 years ago. He told Fox 2 Detroit, that his neighbor normally spreads the manure throughout his field but decided to create a fence out of it to add some emphasis on where exactly the properties divide is.
Well, that's one way to make sure no ones crossing any lines.
Lambarth is currently renting out the house on his portion of the property and his tenants said the smell is so bad they can't even open their windows.
When one of the tenants asked the neighbor about the wall he said, "It's not a poop wall. It's a compost fence."
Compost fence, poop wall, what's the difference really? It's dividing the land and it smells horrible. Am I right or am I right?
Officials say that even though the wall is causing a disturbance, they can't do anything about it because it's on the neighbors property. You can read the full story on Fox 2 Detroit's website.
Listen, I live next to some farm land and let me say on a warm day, the air is definitely ripe. If there was a 250-foot long wall of cow manure within a few feet of my window, some words would be said. My luck, the manure would end up on my porch or blocking my car in.
A wall of cow manure isn't ideal, but at least we don't have some of these deadly animals in our backyard.
