The Kentucky Large/Food Animal Veterinary Incentive Program

The Kentucky Farm Bureau has introduced a new program aimed to promote large animal veterinarians.
The Kentucky Large/Food Animal Veterinary Incentive Program is accepting applications for large/food animal veterinarians.
The program pays $6,000 a year of outstanding loans aside from salaries. Veterinarians, veterinary technicians and veterinary technologists are all eligible.
“This program is important to Kentucky’s animal agriculture industry and our food supply,” Commissioner Farmer said. “Veterinarians are leaving large animal practices faster than they can be replaced. Livestock account for about $3 billion a year in farm cash receipts, so it’s important to Kentucky’s economy that we have enough veterinarians to serve the large food animal industry.”
Those who are eligible must apply two years upon graduation and preference is given to Kentucky residents. Applicants must apply through the Kentucky Farm Bureau in Louisville and must be postmarked by December 1. Download an application here.
