GSBN:Re: Alfalfa Bales



I wouldn't do it. Firstly, the risk of rotting bales much higher. More frightening to me is the risk of spontaneous combustion. If alfalfa bales get wet, they can generate enough heat to start a fire on their own. They can set themselves on fire and/or burn adjoining wooden posts, beams, etc.

Hi all,


I have gotten a request for information about the use of Bales made with
Alfalfa.  It seems that Argentina they are the only bales available.  Does
anyone know if they work well for building?  Alfalfa is usually ãfoodä for
animals, but if it is the only thing available?

Thanks,
