Funds Available for Livestock Promotion

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana State Department of Agriculture is offering three grants to champion Indiana’s livestock industry. The Indiana Livestock Promotion Grant, Indiana Livestock Market Development Grant, and the 4-H/ FFA Youth Livestock Grant. The deadline for all livestock grants is Feb. 1, 2014.

The 4-H/ FFA Youth Livestock Grant is an opportunity for 4-H or FFA chapters to “pay it forward.” Students can use the funds to help fellow students purchase breeding stock to start a livestock operation or to add animals to an existing operation.

The Indiana Livestock Promotion Grant is for qualifying organizations to submit project proposals designed to promote the livestock industry in Indiana through shows, sales, exhibitions, conventions, or similar events and programs.

The Indiana Livestock Marketing Development Grant is for qualifying organizations to submit project proposals for value added feasibility studies, research projects, market development, or other projects that encourage the development of business and industry related to livestock production, processing and distribution.

The deadline for grant applications is Feb. 1, 2014. For more information, please visit ISDA’s website.
