We put approximately 300 lbs of "Pel" lime per acre. The pelletized lime is more concentrated. This was recommended by Ag guys.

Yes, there is a difference.* Ag lime is to raise the ph in the soil.* The lime around your barn to control flies or bacteria is household or hydrated lime.* Either will raise the ph.* Around the barn and feeders, i would use hydrated lime.

If your going to lime you need to put 3 tons per acer to do any good.

The first time we lime we put 3 tons per acer .

The second time we put 2 tons per acer.

Then 1 ton per acer every year .

You will be able to tell a difference it works

The way to know is to have a ph test ran. They are cheap and will tell you how much lime is needed. You can get a kit for soil samples from most feed stores. All ag universities also test soil samples.

Why are you guys liming pens? What is the reason? Is it to help with some illness are for growing ?


Does liming the pen help with any illness like foot rot or worms?


Headley, you said we would notice a difference. What would we notice a difference in.

Liming kills bacteria!!!! Bacteria = Dead Deer!!! DEER POOP* AND PEE ALOT WHICH GOES INTO THE SOIL* AND MAKES BACTERIA SO YOU LIME TO KILL THE BACTERIA!!!! GEEEZ Yall should know this!!!! We lime our pastures every year very heavy with pelletized lime right*before a good rain in the spring. It also helps the grass grow. Deer don't eat lime*its bad tasting to them it wont hurt them its*natural....*

Deer cost a lot of money and a simple thing to do is liming your pens in the spring to cut down/kill bacteria I'm sorry I get crazy but nobody explains things on here I get frustrated lol
