By Crystal Staley/Scottie Ellis

Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman announced on Thursday that U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has signed a Secretarial Disaster Designation for the following counties: Adair, Allen, Barren, Butler, Casey, Edmonson, Grayson, Green, Hart, Larue, Logan, Marion, Simpson, Taylor and Warren.

The Secretarial Disaster Designation will expand resources available for agriculture producers in these counties as they rebuild operations.

As of Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has released a new program for farmers to rebuild and repair permanent fencing through the Emergency Conservation Program at the Farm Service Agency. Lt. Gov. Coleman thanked Dean Schamore, Kentucky's new USDA FSA state director, and Secretary Vilsack for their support.
