  Mary Jayne Cannon of the Kentucky Farm Bureau State Women’s Committee presents Dexter Taylor and Mason Kirby an award of recognition for participation in the 2023 Science in Agriculture program.

Louisville, KY (November 30, 2023) – Butler County students Dexter Taylor and Mason Kirby were among the 9 students selected from across the state to display their agriculture science projects at this week’s Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) annual meeting in Louisville.

Taylor and Kirby, seventh-grade students at Oak Ridge Christian Academy, displayed their experiment “Protecting Our Harvest” which explored the best method for preventing mold damage to corn once it enters a grain bin.    

The students were awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for participating at the state level.

The Science in Agriculture program was developed by KFB to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy and scientific thought.

Kentucky Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm organization with more than 474,000 member families. For more news and updates from Kentucky Farm Bureau, visit
