Several Counties Eligible for Agriculture Funding

Neighboring Adair and Casey counties along with nearby Green and Taylor counties joined 11 other counties as being eligible for expanded resources for agricultural producers as they rebuild operations following the recent string of severe weather events that affected the area.

Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman announced this week that U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has signed a Secretarial Disaster Designation for those counties.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has released a new program for farmers to rebuild and repair permanent fencing through the Emergency Conservation Program at the Farm Service Agency.
