The largest outdoor farm show in the United States, Farm Progress Show showcases the latest agricultural innovations and features over 300 acres where attendees have a front-row seat to watch harvest, tillage, and other farming demonstrations.
Propane plays an important role in agriculture; it provides clean, reliable energy to farms in rural areas. The most common uses of propane on the farm are for irrigation and grain drying, but propane can also be used in building and water heating, power generation, flame weeding, vehicles, mowers, and forklifts.
This year at Farm Progress Show, the Propane Education & Research Council partnered with Sukup Manufacturing, Co. to host the Ag Influencer Exchange Forum. Eight social media personalities in the agriculture space took to the stage to discuss how their farms and ranches utilize propane to reduce emissions and save money.
“We want to preserve our land and our farm for years to come, so we are constantly looking for ways to be better and use less land and fewer resources,” said panelist Annaliese Wegner, known online as the Modern-Day Farm Chick. Other panelists echoed this sentiment, sharing that propane is their preferred energy source to power necessary equipment and farming operations – and in some cases, their homes – in an environmentally conscious way.
