    I got a bag of dolomitix lime and the stuff is like too slushy wet to be spread with a broadcaster, the only way I found to be able to spread it was use the "feed the chicken" method ! Is there a secret to spreading this stuff ?

    I think all the bags are wet, there are little holes in the bags I presume to ventilate or reduce the air in them.

    RUN to the nearest dumpster and chug that c&ap it it as fast as you can then go and get some pellitized lime. It will spread much better and is a lot less dusty
