Hummm thats something to look into, the water treatment lime, but we have to pay minimum of $85.00 per ton, and it comes bagged,,,,,,,,,,,,,,no bulk producers locally
, and no way to spead it really. Mountain pastures are way too steep. :cboy:

Well, had the local distributor out todayto show him the place and where I need the lime.He tells me the price has gone up to $35.00 a ton because of diesel prices. :o :( :shock: :x

The price i was quoted was $28 / ton spread...that was before the most recent jump in fuel prices. I'm located in the north Georgia area.

I'm about seventy miles from the quarry...I'll go pick up a dump truckload for $5-6 a ton and the just rent the spreader. Fuel, rent, lime and all around $12 per ton.

I talked to a man from Batesville,he said that there #1 lime is $7.00 per ton and #2 lime is $5.00 per ton(not spread). The only difference is that # 2 has been "piled up outside" for a while. I am located in the west central part of the state,and they have to haul the lime further....hence the higher cost (diesel),. :shock: :mad:
