Seward met June 6 with dairy producers and advocates for farming during the 2018 Legislative Dairy Day in Albany. Newly-crowned Delaware County Dairy Princess Morgan Hungerford, a junior at South Kortright Central School, was on hand to dish out ice cream and promote dairy farming. Timothy James, a Delaware Academy sophomore, presented his state winning FFA agriscience fair project. James will be advancing to the National FFA Competition Oct. 25 in Indianapolis, Ind.

Senator Seward is a long-standing member of the Senate Agriculture Committee and has consistently worked to ensure programs benefiting New York’s dairy industry receive state support. During this year’s state budget negotiations, Senator Seward led the fight to add more than $13 million to the governor’s budget proposal and restore budget cuts to dozens of programs that farmers depend on.
