WISCONSIN FARMERS' INSTITUTES
"WHERE CAN YOU GET LIME?"
That is easy to answer:
1. There are commercial lime rock grinding companies from whom it is
possible to get ground lime rock laid down in car lots at your station at
prices ranging probably from $3 to $3.75 a ton at the most.
The following companies are licensed to sell agricultural lime in Wisconsin:
Biesanz Stone Co., Winona, Minnesota
Breen Stone and Marble Co., Kasota, Minnesota
Cutler-Magner Co., Duluth, Minnesota
Fowler & Pay, Mankato, Minnesota
Mike Gunter, Escanaba, Michigan
Lake Shore Stone Co., Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Mayville White Lime Works, Mayville, Wisconsin
Outagamie Limestone Co., Black Creek, Wisconsin
Racine Crushed Stone Co., Racine, Wisconsin
Rockfield Products Co., Rockfield, Wisconsin
J. L. Shieley Co., St. Paul, Minnesota
Summit Marl Co., Watertown, Wisconsin
Waukesha Lime & Stone Co., Waukesha, Wisconsin
Western Lime & Cement Co., Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Wisconsin Limestone Co., Milwaukee, Wisconsin
2. Local lime rock grinders: In a large number of counties there are lime
rock outcrops where farmers grind their own lime with a gas engine for power
and a portable machine to do the grinding. In Green Lake, Rock, Green and
Iowa counties farmers are using such outfits very successfully and the ad-
vantage comes in reducing length of the haul from the grinder to the field.
MEANS TO THE MIRACLE
Ths is only one of many lime rock grinders in the wonder work over in
Green Lake County where County Agent Lacey is the inspiration. This can
be repeated wherever there is lime rock. All that is needed is de.
ternained, hopeful, forward-looking men.
