Boston C. Howe, a Dry Ridge native, has been named a loan officer with Central Kentucky Ag Credit and will work with the Ag Credit lending team at the Lexington Branch.
He has a rich background in farming and livestock sales. He worked with S&B Cattle Co. at Bluegrass Stock Yards in Lexington prior to being named an Ag Credit Loan Officer.
Howe grew up on the family farm in Grant County, which consists of 120 acres. The primary farm enterprise consists of a cow-calf operation and production of alfalfa hay for livestock consumption.
The Howe family has been involved in equine activities, and they raise American Quarter Horses. In addition, they also own and operate a 32,000 sq. ft. multiple-use exposition facility in Grant County that is known as Kentucky Cowtown. Livestock auctions, horse shows, rodeo events and other agricultural events are hosted at Kentucky Cowtown.
Howe earned his Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Kentucky, where he also earned several academic scholarships, including those awarded by the Grant County Cattlemen’s Association and the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture. While a student, Howe was named to the dean’s list multiple times, and he is a member of Farm House Fraternity.
He is the son of Steve and Monica Howe of Dry Ridge and will make his home in Lexington. His work with Central Kentucky Ag Credit will span the full-range of short and long-term farm and rural lending.
