The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board, chaired by Gov. Steve Beshear, approved $300,000 in Owen County Agricultural Development Funds for a County Agricultural Investment Program at its June business meeting. The Owen County Farm Bureau submitted a proposal to the Owen County Agricultural Development Council and the Kentucky Agricultural Development Board to provide cost-share incentives to area farmers.
CAIP is designed to provide farmers with incentives to allow them to improve and diversify their current production practices.
Producers may pick up applications at the Owen County Cooperative Extension Office. The deadline to return those applications to the extension office is Sept. 9.
For more information about the sign-up period and the complete guidelines for this program in Owen County, contact David Chappell with the farm bureau at (502) 484-2363 or (502) 593-5500.
