Below is the 2012 Census of Agriculture for Bedford County, Tennessee. 

Bedford County ranks first in the state for number of horses and ponies and the value of sales for horses, ponies, mules, burros, and donkeys.  We rank second in the state for value of livestock, poultry and egg sales, number of broiler/meat-type chickens and forage-land used for hay, haylage, grass silage and greenchop. 

Ag revenues generate over $107.3 million annually and economists estimate that amount will regenerate itself 7 times over, meaning agriculture sales create over $751 million combined in products, jobs, services, and tax revenue just in Bedford County.
