Farms here in central and northern Michigan need all fuel to keep their crops growing, their livestock safely warm, and more. Increasingly, farmers are finding that propane is the right fuel for the job.
Coyne has been working with farmers since our business started, in 1930. We provide the reliable, responsive service our customers know they can trust.
Here are just some of the ways efficient, clean-burning propane can be used around your farm:
Propane is the best fuel for drying crops. Dryers powered by propane let you keep more of your yield that would be lost to rot if left to dry outdoors. And they are up to 50% more efficient than crop dryers powered by other fuels.
Propane does so much in your farm buildings. With it your livestock is safe and warm. Your greenhouses stay at the proper temperature for the safety of your plants. Efficient water heating helps keep buildings, livestock and equipment clean.
Forklifts are a workhorse on a farm, hauling materials quickly and efficiently. Propane forklifts can be used safely indoors and out, thanks to their low emissions levels. They are more powerful than electric forklifts, are better on inclines and can work in wet conditions.
Propane standby generators make sure that your buildings have the power they need for milking machines, lighting and other tasks.
Propane flame weed control is a much better way to get rid of weeds than herbicides. It is extremely effective. You and your workers aren’t exposed to harsh chemicals. You can get back to work in the field right away rather than having to wait, as you do with herbicides. It does not damage the soil or get into the groundwater the way herbicides can.
