One thought on “What’s Soil pH and Why Do I Care?

  1. -I am very interested in this . We have a smallholding in central scotland and I am currently keeping a couple of shetland cattle , osb pigs and a ‘working’ pony along with chickens. I am trying to understand the complex issues of soil conditions and animal health-are scottish breeds adapted to thrive on acidic soils given natural pasture and forage? Or is that rushing evolution to expect such swift adaptation and do I have to provide mineral supplements. Our old pony has developed arthritis despite a forage diet and am wondering if he is defficient in certain minerals-these symptoms will become apparent in older stock which is irrelevent to most farmers but for smallholders with house cows an important consideration. Thanks for information.
