Hey,
I am located in south AR and I'm needing around 20 tons of bulk ag lime. The cheapest I have found is 70 bucks a ton with the buggy to spread it. Does anyone know of any cheaper place I can get the lime? maybe from someone who hauls it and will dump it on my property. I have access to a tractor and front end loader, so as long as it was dry, this would work.... Thanks

Where at in South Ark? Cause you can buy lime at Pendleton in bulk and rent a litter buggy from your local soil conservation service to apply the lime. You will have to locate a dump truck locally to haul it and need a tractor with around 80 plus horse power to pull it.Let me know where you are and I may be able to put you in touch with some local haulers.

My land is about halfway between Pine Bluff and Warren in Cleveland county... I found it from a guy in Rowell for 70$ a ton with the buggy.... and that may be my best price...just wanted to compare it to make sure I couldnt' save alot using somewhere else.

Farmers supply on Interstate 30 in Benton across from Brown's Country Restaurant. $56/ton comes with buggy. They have 2 buggies. One hydraulic and the other one is ground driven. 3 week reservation notice.

That sounds high to me, I paid $23.00/ton delivered to Pine Bluff from Batesville about 2 years ago and then rented a litter spreader from Jefferson County for $100 and I spread 20 tons in one afternoon. Theres a guy at Rison named Virgil Turner that is hauling some for a buddy of mine and I will get his number and find out a current price delivered.I will get back ASAP!

I heard that there is guy a from Cabot with a custom lime application business that will haul and spread the lime for $31.00/ton. THe most current price for the lime at Arkansas Lime in Batesville was $5.25/ton plus freight which usually run between $17 and $21/ton. That lime price may be a couple of weeks old and may have changed a little since then.

Did you put it in the spreader by hand? Also, how did that PTO spreader do spreading it.
we got soil samples on 4 seperate small plots.we put out bulk ag lime with 10 percent more bagged pelletized lime.pelletized lime will work immediate while ag lime will take a while but will last a couple years longer and alot cheaper.. we had to use a 3 point pto spreader because they are remote areas. it worked ok on a calm day about 550 lbs at a time.
