Adding Agricultural Lime to My Pastures

With cooler temperatures and rain showers expected this afternoon and tonight, it’s a good time to treat the horse pastures.

Anyone with grazing animals understands that pasture management is extremely important. A well-maintained pasture is the most natural and healthy environment for any foraging animal. Yesterday, Carlos Trigueros from Trigueros Family Farm Inc. in Brewster treated the pastures with agricultural lime. Agricultural lime is a soil additive made from pulverized limestone or chalk that works to correct the acidity of the soil, eradicate any noxious weeds, and raise the overall health of the land.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
