    What is everyone using for walks this season? I hear that the price is up because Morton is withholding the raw material from the baggers. What is the best product to use in Michigan and where can we get it?

    Consider something other than or along with your SALT!

    SALT MAY OR MAY NOT BE YOUR BEST CHOICE. Based on temperature ranges and the vary widely in most markets, salt may be an option but there are many other choices that may be better protection for both you and your customer. Magnesium, Calcium and other products do cost more to buy, but offer many benefits to you and your customer.

    I suggest checking into it. Yes, salt is the best option sometimes, but so are the other products based on conditions and intensity. Liability is the real reason for any of it!
