|Heifers find new homes in Franklin|
Last week bred heifers were branded and assigned to new homes in Franklin Parish through a service project of Franklin Parish Self-Help the Local ARM of a group known as Heifers Project International.
The Franklin Parish organization is in its 19th year of funding. The privately funded program provides five bred heifers and the use of a bull to families interested in breaking into the cattle industry. Participants receive education and training for nine months before they receive cattle and are then required to return five heifers to the program to assist another family.
