Cost-share assistance available to Lincoln farm owners
STANFORD - The Lincoln County Cattlemen's Association in cooperation with the Governor's Office of Agriculture Policy is offering cost share assistance for Lincoln County farm owners for hay storage barns or sheds, grain facilities, and feed storage facilities.
Funding will be based on the size of facility built. A maximum of $5,000 will be available for any farm operation. The program is different than previous programs in that it is not first come, first served. Applications must be submitted to the Lincoln Couty Extension Service no later than July 30.
After the deadline, a committee from the Cattlemen's Association and the Lincoln County Ag. Development Board will evaluate each application on a point scoring system to determine those eligible. The state scoring system is mandated to be used.
