New Study Concludes New York’s Equine Business Tops $1.83 Billion
Every five years the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets conducts a survey of the value of Equine inventory in New York State. The total inventory value of $1.83 billion was an eight percent increase from 2000’s study of $1.7 billion. This increase is attributed to an increased number of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules totaling 197,000, up 17% from the 168,000 counted in 2000.
This is an informative survey encompassing information concerning related aspects of New York’s Equine industry including land use, types of equine operations, equine use, value of equine assets, and equine expenditures and revenues. These results will be available at www.nass.usda.gov/ny.
