The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board approved $4,463,420 in 28 agricultural diversification projects across the state.
The LaRue County Beef Cattle Association Inc. was awarded $130,000.
Extension agent David Harrison said the beef producers will act as the administrator for the funds. Individuals and groups can apply for funds in 11 different areas. An informational meeting will be held later this year.
The County Agricultural Investment Program is designed to provide farmers with incentives to allow them to improve and diversify their current production practices.
