I am looking at lime prices right now and they seem pretty steep. Has anyone ever used paper mill lime? The land I hunt on is in the swamp and we need a lot of lime...

Bulk lime at the co-op or Ag store is usually pretty cheap. Never used any from paper mill, but don’t see how it could be cheaper.

We got basic slag one year in a pinch. It was very inexpensive but the results didn’t last long either. It washed out or off the soil rapidly.

Don't use paper mill "slag." Ag lime hasn't gone up to my knowledge. Delivered rate may have gone up, but not the lime itself. Least expensive, but still good, way to do it if you have a lot to cover is: (1) have ___ tons (the amount you need) delivered and (2) dumped in an area you can easily load a buggy, but you aren't worried about growing anything, (3) get the buggy from whomever delivered it; (4) Use tractor with large bucket to load buggy; (5) drag buggy with tractor.

We just had 100 tons delivered at our farm. $35 a ton. ALFisher pretty well summed it up.

My questions here are (1) how do you know what's in the "lime mud" unless you do what they did and test exactly what you are getting, and (2) how are you going to move it to "x" number of patches? And if you can't do (1), are you really going to trust whoever is selling/giving this stuff to you?

I've been quoted from $40-$60/ton delivered and that includes a buggy.

The delivered or delivered and spread price is all going to vary depending on how close or far you are away from the source of the lime. Sylacauga is close, so far less transportation costs. South Alabama is not, so will cost much more. Really no way around it.

I just wish I could get it spread on my place. They won’t come for two tons and don’t think my 30hp tractor could pull the buggy.


Would walk over a naked woman to get to a gobblin turkey!

You can get the pelletized lime in a bag just like fertilizer it just takes a little longer for it to start working a lot of people have to go this route. I’ve done it before and had good luck with it

Stoney- I'd guess we are within a mile of you, and the last time we had lime spread, the Co-Op said never again. 6 or 8 small fields, scattered around 5-600 acres, with a fairly poor road system. We'll probably just scatter pelletized with the tractor going forward. Honestly, while the cost/lb is far steeper, in the quantities we use, every 3-4 years, it's easier to just do it ourselves. I do know our soil needs it regularly.

I guess they won't drop off a buggy and only will deliver in a spreader truck? In the past we have had a buggy full delivered from the co-op and then we get another 6-8 tons in bulk tote bags and put them on a gooseneck. Then we transfer the totes to pickups and refill the buggy in each plot. The biggest pain is unhooking the tractor each time to load.

That’s what I’ve done at the house just really expensive compared to bulk powder.

Pelleted lime melts when it rains and actually starts working very quickly.

If you get desperate do what I did.I had 10 tons delivered, hooked up my trailer to the Polaris, shoveled lime on back of trailer and blew it off with a backpack blower while driving slowly.
