JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – – Missouri Farm Bureau has designated 66 members of the Missouri House of Representatives as recipients of the 2022 Friends of Agriculture award.
Since 1996, MOFB has given the Friend of Agriculture award to state representatives. In order to receive the award, legislators must be nominated by their county Farm Bureau board and have a supportive voting record over the previous two legislative sessions. This combination ensures that Friend of Agriculture award winners are proven leaders who support MOFB members both at home and in Jefferson City.
“Rural Missourians can be proud of these individuals for standing up for them in Jefferson City,” said Missouri Farm Bureau President Garrett Hawkins. “We are grateful for the time spent both on the floor and behind the scenes over the past two sessions by this group to get multiple bills across the finish line.”
The list of this year’s Friend of Agriculture awardees is available below.
