How to Prepare for the Grain Drying Season
Assess your storage needs and fill early to avoid propane supply headaches during harvest. 2019 brought record-high crop drying demands, and propane supplies were tight in many areas. 

Unfortunately, we can’t predict what this year’s harvest season will bring. Preparing early is the key to ensuring an adequate supply through harvest and winter. Here is how you can prepare for the 2020 drying season.

Refill your propane tank early.
By filling tanks earlier you can help ensure you’ll have an adequate supply when harvest begins. Fall and winter also means the heat in homes and livestock facilities is getting turned on, creating more demand and higher prices.

Ask us about pricing programs.
Central Counties Co-op offers different propane purchasing opportunities throughout the year to help you spread out your payments or take advantage of what are traditionally the best times to lock-in low pricing. Check out our programs here.

Set up a delivery schedule now.
Fill early and then chat with a Central Counties Energy team member about your expected in-season needs. You can use this time to set up a delivery schedule so you can know what to expect come harvest time- which can help reduce devastating downtime.

Getting organized now can make all the difference when it comes to crop drying and winter. To learn more about our fill programs and supply planning visit here.
