We’ve had the privilege of having Casey Montgomery as our summer intern. She will be leaving us here in a few days and heading back to UK. We appreciate her hard work and here is some info about her.
A Taylorsville Native, Casey graduated from Spencer County High School in 2021 and is now studying at the University of Kentucky where she is majoring in Agricultural Education and double minoring in Animal Sciences and Agricultural
Economics. She has been heavily involved in agriculture for numerous years through production and leadership experiences. Casey currently helps operate Twin Plum Farm where she aids her family in raising Sim-Angus cattle, Grass-mix hay, market, breeding, and show swine. Casey has also been active in 4-H and FFA through competing on the state and
national level among both youth programs, volunteering locally and for state extension, and holding leadership positions on the local and state level within FFA. She credits these experiences and the mentors she has gained as the impacts that have inspired her to become an agricultural educator.
If you can’t find her on the farm or volunteering for the programs that shaped her, you can probably find her spending time with family and friends or listening to music. Casey has been a part of Spencer County 4-H since she was just a 5-year-old Cloverbud and is ecstatic to continue to give back to the extension service here in Spencer County.
