Chester County woman makes Farm Show History
Kaitlin Bell of Nottingham, Pa., made Pennsylvania Farm Show history on January 6th as the first person to win Beef Cattle Supreme in both the heifer and the bull categories. She also had the honor of both the heifer and bull winners being bred and owned on her family’s farm. Congratulations to her–and the proud Bell family--on this major accomplishment. Kaitlin is a shining example of the next generation of young ag leaders already doing amazing work in the industry.
