  • The Kentucky Agri­cul­tural Development Board approved the County Agricultural Investment Program in March.

    The program provides farmers with incentives to improve and diversify current production practices.

    CAIP combines what were known previously as County Model Cost-share Programs into one, in which each model program becomes an investment area.

    This change, along with a 12-month term for all investment areas, will provide better uniformity and continuity, which will enhance accountability.

    A man who felt neglected because his wife was spending so much time with the kids, decided to make a change. Storming into the house he announced, “As the man of this house, my word is law. From now on I expect you to prepare gourmet meals every night, run my bath, and leave out my clothes. Then afterwards, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my hair?” Quietly his wife replied, “The funeral director.”
