You would if it was baled too wet!  We try to keep the moisture under 14%, otherwise, it could burn and destroy a stack of hay!  Have seen this happen!   V6sRZf4

When I was picking up hay as a summer job, round bales were non-existent. Boss tried to tell the customer it was too soon to put it up but the guy was 'faced at 1am baling three rows away from us. 24hrs later, no more barn.

That would be bad!!! V6sRZf4

Have seen it happen to piles of wood chips as well.
