“Congratulations to Mike Parson on his swearing in as Missouri Governor. Governor Parson will be an outstanding leader for our state, and we look forward to working with him in the coming years.

“Agriculture is the leading industry in Missouri, and we’ve never had a governor with deeper farming roots or broader agricultural experience. Hundreds of members of Missouri Farm Bureau consider Mike Parson a personal friend, and every Missouri farmer considers him a friend of Missouri agriculture.

“It is an historic day for Missouri, and the future is bright for our state and our industry.”
