Hannah (Lainey) Koval
Lainey grew up on Koval Brothers Dairy Farm in Saratoga county and whether it was showing her cows at the fair, helping her parents in the barn, promoting local dairy products, or being a part of her local 4-H or FFA program, Lainey was always submerged in agriculture. She attends Cornell University for Agricultural Science with plans to concentrate in business management so she may, hopefully, return and work on her family’s dairy farm.
Michael came into the world of agriculture later in life through at a flower nursery in Saratoga Springs. The owners themselves had an overflowing passion for the nursery business which watered his own growing love for Agriculture. The experience helped him settle on pursuing an education in agriculture. He is attending Suny Morrisville with his major in Agricultural Science.
Agricultural was the base of some of Blake’s earliest memories. His day-to-day has always revolved around agriculture; from feeding calves to watching his dad milk cows before school in the morning. He is attending Cornell University it was always his dream to attend their prestigious school of animal science and Dairy management program. When not in school, he spends much of his time working on local dairy farms doing herd work.
We wish each of these winners the best as they move forward with their education and we look forward to crossing paths with them in the future as professionals in our local community of agricultural.
