How do you use lime in a barn?
Considering this, is Barn Lime the same as ag lime?
Barn Lime (also referred to by some as, Ag Lime or Dairy Lime) has essentially zero, zilch, nada, ability to remove ammonia and odors. Barn lime is simply crushed up limestone, or Calcium Carbonate. Hydrated lime is very caustic, toxic and hazardous to handle and breathe.
Subsequently, question is, is Barn Lime safe for horses? Luckily, Barn Lime is not harmful to your horse, unlike its cousin Hydrated Lime. Hydrated Lime (calcium hydroxide) on the other hand, becomes caustic when it is wet and may cause serious burns to your horseâ€™s skin, in addition to possible eye damage.
Also to know is, will barn lime hurt dogs?
So, while lime likely won't cause your dog to become seriously ill, it's not a good idea to spread pellets and then let your dog run free. Lime dust, in any form, may cause lung, skin and eye irritation, and it should be fully integrated into the soil before anyone — human or animal should use the lawn.
Does barn lime kill bacteria?
“Agricultural lime does not kill coccidia but it can kill some types of bacteria. Hydrated lime is an irritant and should not be used around animals.
