  • Farmers' markets expand acess for low-income Kentucky families

    Low-income families can use their SNAP benefits to buy fresh, nutritious local foods at more Kentucky farmers’ markets than ever before, Agriculture Commissioner James Comer said.

    Up to 225 farmers’ markets and individual producers now use Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) equipment – a more than 10-fold increase from 21 markets in 2010. The EBT equipment enables customers to buy foods at farmers’ markets with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) benefits and to pay with debit or credit cards.

  • Cattle and Hot Weather

    It is Hot! Periods of heat stress call for cattle producers to make sure their animals are adequately prepared. One of the most important things producers can do is provide cool, clean drinking water. Providing an adequate source of drinking water helps to keep animals’ internal body temperatures within normal limits.

    Above ground water lines need to be shaded so they do not can act as solar water heaters and make the water too hot to drink.
