Horse breeding farms in Kentucky will now be eligible for some federal aid when disasters hit the state.
The parameters associated with being eligible for relief include commercially operating horse breeding farms which also claim the breeders for tax purposes with the IRS.
Horse farms will now be able to seek technical assistance and emergency loans for restoration after natural disasters occur. The programs are administered under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Other benefits are for relief during times of drought where emergency water measures may need to be taken.
