The Minnesota Department of Ag is offering $1 million of livestock investment grants to producers making improvements in their operation. MDA Grants Administrator David Weinand says there is a $50,000 lifetime cap for the competitive grant program.
He says Minnesota farmers can also use the grant as an incentive for financing.
Applications are due September 23 and can be found on the MDA website. The entries will be scored with extra points given to beginning farmers, operations hit by natural disaster and those addressing and environmental issue.
