Can you explain why you think there would be more air leakage around the

The cut side of the bales consist of a series of ridges and grooves (where
each flake is cut off), and thus in these bales, as the bales are stacked,
the Bales above rest on the ridges, leaving a series of corrugated grooves
between the Bales that I speculate might allow greater air "flow" than would
typically pass through the mass of the Bales. That might even become more
pronounced if two corrugated surfaces were put together.
