    it seems that a couple of the big wholesale salt suppliers around here have chosen not to be suplieing the area this year.I also heard that whatever salt that has been shipped is all they will have all winter and that they have stopped mining for now. Does anyone know of any other main suppliers other than morton, statewide or cargill that supply in bulk rocksalt in large quanties? We have 1500 tons secured by contract but could use more.
