You can tell it is spring in Amherst because the wind carries the smell of manure from the cow farms in Hadley.

Normally, "cow farms" are called "ranches" or "dairy farms" depending upon the ultimate raison d'être of the animals. How vividly I remember manuring season in Iowa (choke, gasp, wheeze). I imagine Cook College at Rutgers smells much the same way, especially since it was 90 or so yesterday.

Also, why does the scent of cow manure make you have a mood of "happy"?

He's completely off his nut, but that doesn't really have any relevance here, does it?

Considering the amount of cows in Iowa versus the amount of cows in Hadley, MA, I can only imagine what manuring season in Iowa must have been like.

The reason I am in a happy mood is because it is supposed to be in the 70s today.

Hey Jamie :)

I've heard stories that the smell is actually not manure, but that of bacteria-infested rotting vegetables...maybe for the farm animals to eat come springtime? Yech! I really don't know. I could be wrong!
