November KENA Lecture Focuses on Funding
The Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) 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 Nov. 14 at Fasig-Tipton in Lexington. The dinner and educational lecture series is open to equine professionals, horse owners, and recreational riders and will feature a networking reception from 5:30-6:00 p.m., followed by dinner with the main speakers from 6-8 p.m.
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. The KENA series, 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 (GOAP), 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
