The County Agricultural Investment Program (CAIP) offers 10 investment areas that give Kentucky agricultural producers the ability to increase net farm income, add value to their products and diversify their operation. CAIP benefits and enhances agriculture across the state by stimulating markets for Kentucky agricultural products. Thirteen CAIPs were approved by the board totaling $3,194,898 for Adair ($265,000), Allen ($194,860), Christian ($150,000), Cumberland ($175,197), Edmonson ($95,000), Fayette ($250,000), Green ($310,000), Hart ($390,000), Mason ($316,100), Nelson ($180,000), Nicholas ($325,409), Pendleton ($241,377), and Shelby ($275,000) counties.

The Shared-use Equipment Program assists broad-based community organizations on the purchase of farm equipment. The equipment purchased is made available for producer use in a specific county on a leased basis. One Shared-use Equipment Program was approved by the board for Hopkins County Farm Bureau, totaling $11,955. The funds will be used to purchase two sprayers and a cattle scale.
Boyle ($7,500) and Christian ($7,500) counties were approved for the Deceased Farm Animal Removal Program (DAR) totaling $15,000. DAR serves as a measure to facilitate the coordination of environmentally sound and cost-effective disposal of deceased livestock for Kentucky producers.
