Western Ranch Supply selected their first Future Generation Youth of the Month. Awarded to Hayley Stahl from Winnett, MT. Hayley is an outstanding leader in her community and is always ready to lend a helping hand. Hayley has organized a toy drive for Operation Shoebox, which sends shoeboxes full of toys around the world to kids before Christmas that might not receive a gift during the holidays.

Not only is Hayley stepping up and making a difference in her community and world, but she also has been a voice for students in her school. Winnett currently does not have an FFA program. Hayley has campaigned in her school and at board meetings to attempt to get this program implemented into their curriculum for agriculture education. Although FFA has yet to be implemented into Winnett’s extra curricular’s, Hayley has persevered by joining AG Ambassadors. The AG Ambassador competition has competitors prepare speeches, record a timed radio spot, social media, and do an interview in front of a panel of judges. Outside of AG Ambassadors Hayley has signed up individually to compete in livestock judging at the NILE.

When Hayley isn’t out campaigning and changing the world, you can find her out with her show cattle. She is not a stranger to being up at the crack of dawn to do her chores before going to school or helping on the family ranch. “Whether it is driving the grain cart or feeding cows in the winter. I know that agriculture is where my passion and my future lay.” To further her passion for agriculture she plans on attending Sheridan College, to attain a degree in Agriculture Business. After attending college, she plans on having her own working farm just like those in her family have before her.
