Taylor County Conservation District has many programs available to residents in Taylor County. The district continues to administer the dead animal removal program for the county. This is the 14th year the district has offered the program free to farmers in Taylor County.
The main purpose of the program is to protect the ground waters in Taylor County and the commonwealth by the proper disposal of dead stock.
The district works with Mark Antle at A&S Proteins in Jamestown to implement the program. Those interested should contact A&S for pickup, pay the required fee and bring the receipt to the conservation district office for a full reimbursement.
For more information, call A&S Proteins at (270) 343-4680 or (270) 566-2421.
The district is accepting applications for cost share funding under the Kentucky Soil and Water Quality Cost Share on a continuous basis.
Some examples of cost share practices are heavy use area, agricultural waste control system, vegetative filter strips, cropland erosion control system, rotational grazing and sinkhole protection.
The district also offers the Equipment Revolving Loan Program through the Kentucky Division of Conservation.
Equipment eligible for these low rate loans include backhoes, no-till drills, precision applicators for agriculture chemicals and other equipment suited for conservation work.
For more information about any of these programs, call 465-8554 or (855) 609-2400 on Monday through Friday or visit the conservation office at 1105 S. Columbia Ave.
