LUMP CHALK FOR BUILDING / CATTLE YARDS
Needham Chalks can supply lump chalk from any of its four quarries around East Anglia for the purpose of building and yard construction.
Chalk is the ideal base for livestock due to it being able to absorb urine from animals. Compared with concrete, a chalk floor allows urine to soak in, keeping straw or other bedding drier, resulting in a more aerobic state, and hence producing less ammonia.
It is also found to be at the fraction of the price compared to the modern day concrete.
