Kentucky Horse Farms

Horse Farms Added To Disaster Relief Program

Feb 14, 2013

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Gov. Steve Beshear says Kentucky's horse breeding farms have been added to the ventures eligible to seek certain federal relief from disasters affecting agriculture.

Those horse farms will be eligible in the future to seek assistance from a federal emergency conservation program.

That program provides emergency funding and technical assistance to restore farmland damaged by natural disasters. It also applies to emergency water conservation measures during times of drought.
