Henry County welcomes Megan McCoun

I was born and raised on a farm in Smithfield where my family has been for generations. When I was younger, my parents ran a mid-sized dairy operation. Now, my family raises alfalfa and orchard grass hay as well as a 40 head commercial beef cattle herd. I am a graduate of Henry County High School and Kentucky State University, where I majored in Agriculture, Food and Environment. After college, I worked as a Research and Extension Assistant at KSU. There I managed the small cow/calf herd and helped conduct livestock nutrition studies. I love all things cows and have a special interest in different hay feeding methods, rotational grazing, and electric fencing.


I am so thankful for the opportunity to work in the area that I know and love. I can’t wait to be back in my community and serve the people of Henry County!
