It's true that the pig farm was there first. The only bad guy in this story is the real estate industry that did not emphatically & specifically notify all prospective buyers of the pig farm's presence.

Actually they did pretty much. At least on the new build. I actually saw the disclosure in a few of the tracts around there.

Resale would be trickier. There it is really a problem for the seller not the RE Agent. I would push a client within a couple of blocks to disclose. Past that up to the client. Representing a buyer in the area I would disclose the pig farm...in fact I would show it to anyone within a mile. Note from my experience many don't mind the odor. My wife calls it the old home fragrance.

Republic Services Garbage Recycling is also in North Las Vegas together with the largest landfill in the USA, Apex Landfill. As someone mentioned here odor cannot be contained and can travel far and wide.

We bought near the pig farm and it was disclosed to us. The school where I taught was even closer. It's really not that bad. It's kind of funny to having grown up and been around rural areas seeing how persnickity people get over every stupid little thing. I'm selling my house and it was built in 1989 and I'm a little worried because, here, that is old. In most of the country, people wouldn't think twice about it.

The farmer was there first. Eminent domain is wrong and immoral. If residents want him to leave, they should pool their resources and entice him to do so.

want some bacon?
no man, i don't eat pork.
are you jewish?
nah, i ain't jewish, i just don't dig on swine, that's all.
why not?
pigs are filthy animals. i don't eat filthy animals.
bacon tastes good. pork chops taste good.
hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but i'd never know cause i wouldn't eat the filthy mf. pigs sleep and root in s***. that's a filthy animal. i ain't eat nothing that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.
how about a dog? dogs eats its own feces.
i don't eat dog either.
yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal?
i wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. but, a dog's got personality. personality goes a long way.
Ah, so by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. is that true?
well we'd have to be talking about one charming mf pig. i mean he'd have to be ten times more charmin' than that arnold on green acres, you know what i'm saying?



no thank you i'm a fruitarian.
what is a frutarian exactly.
we believe that fruits and vegtables have feelings so we think cooking is cruel. we only eat things that have actually fallen from the tree or bush and are in fact dead already.
so, uh, these carrots...
have been murdered. yes.
murdered? poor ole carrots. that's beastly.

I remember seeing that movie. Loved the movie, but the definition of a fruitarian is someone who only eats fruit.

It was disclosed to me and I live almost 8 miles away and off the wind line. I think I have smelled it once this year. Its not so much the odor as it is the unsightly grounds surrounding it.

There is no enticing the guy. There is a YouTube video about him turning down something like 60 million from real estate developers back during the boom.

It is kind of like people that buy homes near the airport and then complain about the noise.

Well, there you have it. We all now know that he's nuts. I find it hard to believe that someone offered him 60 million, though.
