    Is agricultural lime that I see referrenced on the forum for use in pens the same as the lime I put on my lawn? Because of where I live, my pen is always wet or damp, and I need to do some smell control.

    Yes it's the same.
    Check to see the label says "Calcium Carbonate, and NOT Calcium Hydroxide (Hydrated Lime)​
