I purchase Miracle Grow potting soil for my houseplants from Home Depot. This time, I purchase a 50 qt bag and it smells like cow manure. The 25 qt bag did not smell at all. Is this soil bad?

Probably..
If it smells, it is likely fungus or bacteria doing a thing the soil, releasing methane , nitrogen gases and the like..
