Ohio Prisons get $1.3M from Selling about 1,400 Dairy Cattle

 |  By: Associated Press

Records show Ohio's prisons agency made nearly $1.3 million after selling about 1,400 dairy cattle as part of a larger effort to raise money for new rehabilitation and job-training programs for inmates.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the one-time money will go to the state Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. It's about half of the yearly cost to buy milk for the state's 50,000 prison inmates.
