Not an approaching storm…

Lime Truck

…but an approaching lime truck. Our pH averaged about 5.8 across the farm and we decided to bring it back up over 6.0.

We’re adding one to two tons of dolomitic lime per acre…depending on what soil testing revealed.

I think this is the best investment you can make in a pasture. It not only kicks up the yield and feeds soil biology, I’m convinced it is one of the reasons Thistle Hill beef and pork just tastes better! IMHO

Good timing too…if we can get it all down. Two days of rain coming to soak it in.

Incidentally over the years we’ve found some difference among soil tests…with the State recommending higher applications than private labs. Just saying!
