SLW -- totally agree. But to the extent I can reduce it, that's my goal. My doctor warns that the barn is the worst place for me, in terms of respiratory health. But my heart can't stand the strain of staying away. So -- I keep trying one "fix" after another.
KR- in order to evaluate the limestone screening dust factor in my barn and just off the stalls leading to the sacrifice area where the lots are covered with 6" of screening- I would have to remove the intersecting gravel roads 1/4 mile away, the gravel road in front of the house, the sacrifice dry lot off of the pens, the 150 acre row crop field across the street from the house and the hay fields behind and beside our property. Dust happens in the country be it man made or natural.
