standard J2194.

(c) A tractor is eligible if the tractor was built before 1987.

percent of total program dollars each fiscal year to promote the program to Minnesota
farmers. The commissioner must minimize administrative costs by cooperating with the
New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health to administer the grant program.
