Prison Enterprises has agriculture programs at five correctional facilities throughout Louisiana. These operations are providing offenders with skills that include farming equipment operation and repair, livestock management, and growing and harvesting of crops.
This operation produces horses that are mainly Quarter Horse and some Warmblood and Percheron horses. They are trained and sold for ranch versitility and law enforcement purposes.
The outstanding health of our quail and chuckers, combined with the steps we take to ensure our flight birds have minimal human contact from chick to maturity, has made them a popular choice among hunting clubs and other groups.
Our extensive rangeherd operation is housed at five separate state correctional facilities. Our operations involve everything from calving to weaning, to backgrounding. Ultimately, our calves are sold on the open market, primarily through video auctions.
Our crops, which include wheat, corn, soybeans, cotton and milo, are primarily grown and harvested at Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana. They are sold on the open market and/or used to feed our livestock and flight birds.
