Anyone know someone who can spread lime for me in Livingston County? I know of one place but the fella on the phone had a bad case of white boys disease. Not sure he could be bothered. Have to call me back. Still waiting. Any referral appreciated.

Well if it is that hard to find someone to do it for you then other option is like what my two friends did They bought a lime truck and they have some of the local guys that still have Coal buckets bring a load back with them when they take a load of coal out to the Toledo area as a return or back haul. John and Bob have a standing order with them and a place with easy access to dump and they build stock piles . at Johns place he had to make a loading pit so he can back the lime truck down into it so the skid steer will reach over the sides , bob has a loader tractor that will reach over the side fine . They did not give much for it and did a few repairs on it , Truck is nothing fancy and a little under powered at times but it does what they want and not much money in it.

Lime. Now that's something we don't have to worry about here in western Colorado.

I'm pretty sure it was Van Gilder. This is one of those jobs I delegate since I am the only one who can run the equipment and repair the equipment, I figure roughly that maybe someone else can talk to peoples voicemail on my behalf. :)

Our elevator does not. We are going to try another elevator further north, but not real hopeful.

I don't see how that is an option, TV, but I will tell you one thing. It's not hard, it's nigh onto impossible. Same goes with many other services. Just had someone shingle a roof for me...took months to find a contractor who would show up. I finally got a referral from the fella who put up my equipment shed a couple years ago. Guy came about 60 miles and finished the roof in two days. No one in this area was even willing to come give an estimate. Just a couple short years ago, they were stopping by begging me for any work I could throw them...and I did it. Now the same guys won't return phone calls.

Do you have a farm store in the area, that does lime?, or maybe a co-op? We have WILCO farm store, here in western Washington, and they sell lime, or spread lime. I would rather work myself, and buy my lime in one ton totes from them, and use an international V box spreader.

No good, Irv. They refer to Fowlerville Ag and that guy...well...has other interests at the moment.

Nope. I could probably find someone to sell it to me in bulk, but I am not going to spread it. I know guys with seriously impaired breathing from spreading lime, but more important, I do not have the equipment and I ain't a buying anymore equipment. Can't get it all inside now as it is. Well, OK...I would buy a good 1020 flex head if one came down the pike for a good price. :)

Several times I have rented a spreader from my fertilizer supplier. They delivered it loaded with 10 tons, which was enough lime for my small acreage. I pulled it with my big tractor, John Deere D, 44 horsepower without any problems. The last time I limed I had them spread it for me. Cost was very reasonable. I was not aware of any health issues with lime spreading. I'd look for a different supplier, might have to pay a little extra to haul it a distance.

Our local feed store here in S.E. Ohio sells bulk and will rent you a trailer spreader. Works good for me
