Indiana farmers urged to share excess propane

– Indiana’s grain farmers are being urged to help out their livestock producer neighbors during the current frigid weather and propane gas shortages.

Indiana Farm Bureau is encouraging grain farmers who use propane for grain drying to check on whether their tanks contain any residual fuel. Farmers with remaining propane are urged to contact neighbors with livestock barns to see if they need extra fuel.

Young chicks, poults and baby pigs are susceptible to harsh cold weather, and barns that lack propane to fuel heaters could lose some of their animals. Dairy farmers also need propane to heat water for sanitizing equipment and tanks.

Excess propane that isn’t needed nearby can be returned to the propane supply chain to help out other producers trying to find the fuel.
