JEFFERSON CITY — Last week marked the first week of the reachMORE Tour. With stops at MFA Inc. and Missouri Soil and Water Conservation District annual meetings on Nov. 28, the Department of Agriculture team exchanged handshakes, ideas and support with hundreds of farmers.
Director Chinn addressed the crowd of farmers and MFA employees at the Holiday Inn Executive Center, after the large majority of the audience visited the Department booth to offer their input via our customer satisfaction and Governor’s Conference on Agriculture survey.
Division directors, Director Chinn and Deputy Director Hawkins then traveled to Tan-Tar-A to speak to a packed room at the Missouri Soil and Water Conservation Districts meeting. Each division director shared information about the services they provide the state, and why they enjoy doing what they do each day. The majority of our staff are from a farm background or currently live on the farm, so our passion for agriculture is deep.
Tonight, we will be at the Missouri Livestock Symposium in Kirksville!
