Ag Enhancement deadline nears for Livestock Projects

NASHVILLE – Dec. 1 is the deadline for eligible farmers to submit reimbursement requests for livestock equipment and feed storage projects approved through the Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program.

“Reimbursement requests are processed in the order they are received. We encourage farmers who are approved for livestock equipment or feed storage projects to finish their projects and submit their complete reimbursement requests as soon as possible for a shorter processing time,” TAEP administrator Mark Powell said.

Producers are also encouraged to utilize the TAEP Online account management system. TAEP Online allows producers to update their contact information, view TAEP history and print reimbursement instructions. Participation in TAEP Online is not required, but producers are encouraged to take advantage of this easy-to-access system to keep account information current. TAEP Online is not a “real-time” payment information system so there may be a delay in how quickly the system is updated.

All approved 2014 producers have received instructions by mail on how to access their account information. Producers can email questions to

The Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program is a cost-share initiative administered by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture to help farmers make long-term, strategic investments to increase profitability.

This year, more than 2,500 livestock equipment and feed storage projects totaling $10 million were approved for funding through the cost-share program. Eligible livestock projects include the purchase of squeeze chutes, pasture sprayers, mineral feeders and other livestock handling or feed storage equipment.
