FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sleek Website Designed to Educate Equine Enthusiasts
Louisiana Economic Development Continues Commitment to Strengthening the Horse Industry

(Opelousas, Louisiana)- When The South Louisiana Equine Agribusiness Council (SLEAC) was created during the summer of 2003, the members were merely looking for a way to unite area horsemen to assist in growing the horse industry in South Louisiana. Now the Council has advanced their efforts by incorporating a new strategy to bring together all those passionate about horses.

The Council's newly created website, http://www.sleac.com, is sponsored by Louisiana Economic Development and offers a variety of resources for those dedicated to staying informed about the ever-growing industry.

"LED recognizes the need to enhance and support the equine industry in South Louisiana," said Kelsey D. Short, Jr., Director, Agriculture, Forest & Food Technology Cluster Development for Louisiana Economic Development and founding member of SLEAC. "We hope the Council's efforts will set the stage for everyone in the horse industry to take part in advancing the industry as a whole. LED has been working closely in advancing this important cluster of our state's economy."

All those interested can sign up to receive news and announcements via e-mail and can also navigate through the site to explore the astounding economic impact the industry has on the state. In addition, SLEAC members can retrieve updated meeting notes and are provided the opportunity to post information in reference to the organizations that they represent.

In recent decades, the economic impact drawn from the horse industry has been overlooked. One of the primary goals of SLEAC is to ensure that the economic impact of the industry is fully developed. Current estimates are that it is in the $1.4 billion range.

SLEAC members hope to serve as a model for others in Louisiana by generating support from leaders in various sectors including equine health, performance training, pleasure riding, academic, economic development, agriculture-related organizations and suppliers. By combining the efforts of numerous organizations, the industry will only continue to prosper.
