FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- More than $2.1 million has been approved for agricultural diversification projects in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board says the funding goes to 19 projects, ranging from a farm-to-table program in Louisville to a livestock slaughter facility in McLean County to a shared-use equipment program in Carter County.

Gov. Steve Beshear is chairman of the development board, which awarded the funds Friday. He says the projects help increase market opportunities, provide education and enhance on-farm investments. He says farmers are able to use the fund to help grow, diversify or upgrade businesses or farm operations.
