KY Farmers Receive Assistance

Frankfort, KY – Kentucky farmers are now eligible for emergency loans after the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced assistance to all 120 counties. The assistance comes in response to droughts and high winds that occurred in the Commonwealth earlier this year. Governor Steve Beshear says he hopes the aid will lessen the conditions' impact on farmers and rural communities. Those interested in more information can contact their local USDA or Farm Service Agency offices.
