PROPANE DEALER LISTS AVAILABLE ONLINE
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Jan. 25-- With Alabama poultry farmers scrambling to find propane to heat their chicken houses, the Alabama Farmers Federation has compiled a list of online resources to help locate dealers.
A list of Alabama Propane Gas Association (APGA) members and their phone numbers is available at: http://www.alabamapropane.com/uploadedFiles/State/Alabama/dealers.pdf.
Mississippi propane dealers also are listed online at: https://www.mspropane.com/dealer_list.cfm.
The Georgia and Tennessee propane associations use an online "find a dealer" application, which searches by ZIP code. Farmers seeking emergency refills may find more dealer options by searching for "residential" refills than "commercial" refills. Search by ZIP at: http://www.usepropane.com/fpr.aspx.
Due to limited supplies at dealer locations, propane industry officials are urging that priority be given to farmers with small chickens and those who do not have enough gas to make it through the arctic blast forecast for early next week.
The Federation continues to work with state and federal elected officials; poultry integrators; the American Farm Bureau Federation; the APGA; trucking associations and others to provide relief to farmers.
