We spread lime x through a spin deck agri hire machine. Works well, you need about 200hp and level ground if you don't want to apply too much.
 
As above really,

Wondering whether it's accurate enough to be able to do this,thinking about sreading Fibrephos/Kalphos though our standard verticle beater muckspreader.

Would rear doors (pictured below) be appropriate?

How is the pronar going Rob Holmes, would you have another? I had another look at one and think it looks value for money but backup makes me nervous.

If your spreading dung could you not just throw a few ton of lime on floor each load . Small rubble bucket one at front one at back and fill with dung kinda thing

Because when gypsum is disposed of alongside biodegradable wastes it can lead to the production of odorous and toxic hydrogen sulphide gas. We get gypsum from a company who basically recycles it in to nugget form and we then have it for the fields that require it
