The pile: 20 tons of pulverized limestone. The Tools: a 16 HP tractor with a broadcast spreader having a 560-pound hopper, and a shovel. The Mission: spread the lime on our 6+ acres of pastures at a rate of 3 tons per acre. Eric did eight loads (2-1/4 tons) yesterday, and back and shoulders willing, hopes for ten or more (around 3 tons) today. Wish him luck, and aspirin.
