Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst made the following statement regarding Governor Parson meeting with farmers in southeast Missouri:

“It is an honor to host Governor Parson today to discuss agriculture issues in southeast Missouri. Having a lifelong farmer as our governor gives Missouri farmers confidence that their voices will be heard in Jefferson City. By meeting with farmers so early in his administration, Governor Parson is showing his dedication to agriculture, Missouri’s number one industry. Our members enjoyed talking with him about the ways we can work together in the coming years on issues such as transportation, rural broadband access and agriculture issues.”
