MDA announces $1 million for livestock
Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson announced that $1 million in grant funding is being made available to livestock producers in the state for on-farm improvements.
The Livestock Investment Grants help farmers stay competitive and reinvest in their industry.
Qualifying producers would be reimbursed 10 percent of the first $500,000 of investment, with a minimum investment of $4,000. Qualifying expenditures include the purchase, construction, or improvement of buildings or facilities for the production of livestock, and the purchase of fencing as well as feeding and waste management equipment.
The deadline to apply for the grant program is Sept. 23. For more information, visit www.mda.state.mn.us/livestockinvestmentgrant.
