Lexington, KY (November 1, 2017)- The Kentucky Horse Council has announced the topic for the November Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinner: Funding Available: Incentive Programs for your Equine Operation. The dinner will be held on November 14, 2017, at Fasig-Tipton in Lexington, Ky. KENA is a dinner and educational series open to equine professionals, horse owners, and recreational riders and will feature a networking reception from 5:30-6:00 PM, followed by dinner with the main speakers from 6-8 PM.
The group, focused on the Kentucky thoroughbred, sport, and pleasure horse community, is charged with the mission of providing an educational and social venue for equine professionals and horse enthusiasts from all disciplines. KENA, which is organized by the Kentucky Horse Council and supported by the University of Kentucky Ag Equine Program, provides the opportunity for attendees to share ideas, business strategies and knowledge, and to obtain up-to-date information on horse and farm management.
Bill McCloskey, the Deputy Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy, will speak on the programs offered through the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. The Governor’s Office of Agriculture Policy provides grants, incentives, and low-interest loans to help farmers and agribusinesses grow and innovate. Many of these programs are available to equine farm owners and businesses, not just other agricultural farms. The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board and the Kentucky Agricultural Finance Corporation Board are administered by the GOAP.
“The programs administered by the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy are incredible resources that are unknown to many horse owners,” says Kentucky Horse Council Executive Director Katy Ross. “We are excited to have Mr. McCloskey come and educate more of the equine community on what they can do to take advantage of this opportunities made available by the Commonwealth.”
Kentucky Horse Council President Erin Woodall will also speak on the funding programs offered by the Kentucky Horse Council Save Our Horses Fund, including the Equine Safety Net and various voucher programs.
