dumb question?
    #2155862 - 12/03/03 05:51 PM (13 years, 8 days ago)

is there a difference between hay and straw? Instead of buy'n straw from the store can't I just go chop off a piece of a hay bail?

as far as i can figure, endigenous endospores in the seeds contained in hay make for the contamination vector... Buy a straw bale! I found a place where they're like 3 bucks...i bought 10 to act as the basis for my snow-fortres this winter...now i need snow.

I think it's because it comes from nature (the hay) and it contains more then just straw and some alfalpha (Spell check?) and alot of natural outdoor bacterias and molds in it that can't be killed from pasturization that puts it at a greater risk of contamination.
