    Wow..!! Is that pelletized lime, or regular Ag lime..?? And here I was grumping at paying a little over $13.00 per ton, @ the quarry.

    Lime is always a good investment for acid soils. Unless you live in Alaska! How much a ton, spread???

    I have a 457 baler I bought new 7-8 years ago. Added a high moisture kit last year and got into baleage. Your new baler sounds like a big job for your tractor but as long as you don't have a bunch of ground to cover it should be ok. Would be cool to get a report on how a 5075 M runs it.

    I do pressure wash the baler some years before putting it to bed, but avoid bearings, hose fittings, etc. I like to get the organic matter out if it if I can; it attracts moisture. I don't do it every year like I do the moco or other machines.

    Good luck everyone with their hay this year, greening up around here now.

    I need to pay my fertilizer bill in the next 10 days or so. I'm planning to ask about Ag lime prices with shipping at that time. If it's not too crazy expensive, I'm gonna bundle a few tons of lime with the fertilizer shipment. I'll let you know what the final cost per ton is at that time.

    The shipping has gone up $3/ton since I wrote my last post... now, it's $35/ton to have everything shipped 175 miles from Anchorage down here.

    Aaaarrggghh..
