The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) has established a hotline for poultry farmers as a resource for those in need of fuel.
Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M.
The poultry fuel hotline is 225-952-8158. The purpose of this hotline is to assist the farmers by putting them in direct contact with a fuel distributor to get fuel for generators and prevent catastrophic losses. Louisiana’s major poultry houses are located in Arcadia, Farmerville and Natchitoches.
According to the LSU AgCenter, poultry is the largest animal enterprise in Louisiana valued at $2.05 billion annually. ■
