What is best to lime the deer pens with. It seems like I read a few years ago to not use ag lime but a different lime. *Cant find it or reminder what it was. Thanks for the help.

Dolomitic Lime may be what you are thinking of but I use regular and pelletized lime as well.

A fellow deer farmer called tonight and he said dehydrated lime. Not for sure what that is.

I believe he meant hydrated lime. Fast acting....sweetens the soil....raises the ph level. *

Hydrated lime will act faster. Dolomite lime is long lasting. Both neutralize the soil ph.
