    What does Southern States charge in your area to spread bulk lime per ton? I am going to have some spread and was wanting to set up a budget. Thanks Erich

    Well the property I want to lime is actually located in Vevay Indiana, which is on the Ohio River. The nearest place to get lime however is across the river at a Southern States in Warsaw Ky. That store is about 10 miles from my farm in Indiana. I actually live in Ohio and getting this kind of info long distance has not been easy so I thought I would ask you guys. Thanks Erich

    The price will depend on the closest quarry and the haul bill from it to your farm. Often the haul bill is more than the actual lime that they are spreading.
