We have rock available that complies with Missouri specifications for state funded construction projects. Please contact us for a full list of the aggregate products we provide in the following categories:

Fine Grind Chemical / Feed Grade Limestone
We mine one of the highest quality seams in our four-state area with calcium carbonate levels up to 95%. As a result, Carthage Crushed Limestone has been serving Midwest poultry and animal feed industries since 1965. Carthage Crushed Limestone is registered with the SQF Institute as meeting the requirements of SQF level 2 Certified HACCP Based Food Safety Plans so that we are able to provide you with superior grade animal feed and pet food products.
All of our fine grind products that are Animal feed and pet food grade go through a drying and milling process that is in compliance with SQF Level 2 requirements. Carthage Crushed Limestone supplies several major industrial and agricultural markets with a wide range of product from our Fine Grind Division, including but not limited to:
- Roofing Shingles
- Clay Targets
- Inert for Dynamite
- Architectural Pre-cast
- Diversified Industrial Fillers
- Glass Sand
- Pellet Coating
- Scrubber Stone
- Kitty Litter
- Water Treatment
Limestone fillers, which are finely ground limestone, are used in a wide range of manufacturing processes including, for example, roofing materials, clay targets, and fertilizers. We are considered a "preferred supplier" with many of our customers using our high purity limestone, that's processed into fillers through grinding into course, medium or fine grades as required.
Calcium carbonate is the most extensively used limestone for producing glass and fiberglass. Carthage Crushed Limestone is one of the largest suppliers to the glass and fiberglass industries in the Midwest. Contact us to find out how we can help you.
Our ledges have a high calcium content which would make an excellent "scrubber stone". This is used for flue gas desulphurization by power plants to remove sulphur-dioxide produced by burning coal.
Bagged Fine Grind Product
Most of our product is offered in 50 pound bags. Please call your order ahead as production schedules can vary by season and large orders may need 2-to-4 weeks’ notice. Loading hours are from 7 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We don’t currently offer a pallet exchange program.
Ag or agriculture lime is limestone "fines" which are used for correcting soil acidity. Our limestone is a very soluble product and a great enhancement for any soil treatment. The fineness of a limestone material affects how rapidly the lime will react in the soil. Don't put it off - Spread it on!
Carthage Crushed Limestone no longer actively mines marble; however, we still possess a large inventory of un-cut and cut stone. Our current stock is perfect for countertops, flagging, sculpting, and landscaping. Our marble is still used in a variety of industries such as for drilling technology, lab research on drill bits for the oil field industry and even by sculptors from all across the country. Marble is available upon appointment only.
