822-Lancaster Farming, Saturday, July 9, 1994
Taking a break from household chores, Stacy Krall takes
time to read over her dairy promotion handbook, ‘Building
Your Dairy Promotion.’
Dairy Princess Does
Talk About It

CORNWALL (Lebanon Co.) Stacy Krall is the
1994-95 Lebanon County dairy princess, a position she
fills after a year as the county dairy maid.
But she almost had to turn down the chance at doing
dairy promotion this year.
Krall, 16, daughter of dairy fanners Glen and Linda
Krall, of Cornwall, has a very busy schedule.
In addition to her farm chores and home responsibili
ties, she is involved with the county livestock club, dairy
club, Cedar Crest FFA, is on the parliamentary procedure
team, and is active with the Midway Church Senior High
It is this last organization, her church, that is keeping
her especially busy this year.
From July 9 to July 17, Stacy said she is planning to
travel with her church group to Kentucky to do volunteer
work building homes for people. She is scheduled to
return to Lebanon County from home building on July 18.
July 19 and 20 is the Southeast FFA District Dairy
Show, at the Lebanon Area Fairgrounds. And then, from
July 26 to July 31, she is scheduled to be in Colorado
attending her church’s National Youth Conference.
This is where she said things started getting shaky with
accepting the responsibility of being the Lebanon County
dairy princess. Because she wasn’t sure she could be home
in time for the Lebanon County Fair, at which she intends
to show two hogs and two registered Holstein heifers.
Being dairy princess means that she would have to be at
the fair, which she doesn’t want to miss.
But if she would have had to drive out to Colorado for
the church’s youth convention, as has been originally
planned, she would not have been able to drive home in
time for the fair.
And, if that would have been the case, she was prepared
to have waited a year before presenting herself as a candi
date for county dairy princess.
However, since the church group going to Colorado has
decided to fly instead of drive, Stacy will be back in Leba
non in time for the fair.
In the meantime, she has been attending the state school
for dairy princesses at Lycoming College, in Williams
port, for the program’s several-day seminar on skills that
can help promote the dairy industry.
Stacy lives on a small, but fertile dairy farm on the
southern edge of a limestone belt which courses the length
of the Lebanon Valley. The farm is in the shadow of the
former Cornwall Iron Ore Mines and Glen and Linda
unfortunately have found themselves at the mercy of local
efforts to install community sewage and water.
While portions of their property have been taken
through eminent domain and almost 4,000 feet of the
farm’s prime cropland is being bisected with a public sew
age line to serve fewer than 10 homes, the Kralls have said
they intend to continue to dairy farm.
