LETTER: Animal removal service benefits us all

-A A +A
By The Staff

On behalf of Spencer County Farm Bureau and its membership, we would like to commend Judge Executive David Jenkins and Fiscal Court for appropriating the necessary funds to keep our dead livestock program going. We recognize and appreciate the fact that with all bodies of government strapped fiscally; this was no easy are task.

Though farmers have always been good stewards of their land, many do not possess the means to adequately dispose of large animal carcasses. There were real concerns what the loss of this service would mean to water quality as well as quality of life here in Spencer County. There’s no question this service benefits not only farmers and livestock owners, but every person who lives in the county.

Again, we appreciate Judge Jenkins and Fiscal Court for their foresight to keep this beneficial service a reality.
