Lawrence County Farm Bureau leaders attend MFB annual meeting

The Lawrence County Farm Bureau joined more than 1,100 other members from throughout the state. Those attending from Lawrence County were: Mark Fellwock, Reagan Bluel, Jim Shepherd, Sharon Shepherd, Tom Wilks, Carolyn Wilks and David J. McCann Sr.

Missouri Farm Bureau members looked forward at their 105th annual meeting held Dec. 8-10 at the Lake of the Ozarks. The meeting’s “momentum” theme was mentioned by several speakers during the convention who told members better days lie ahead for agriculture. Governor Mike Parson and U.S. Senator Roy Blunt shared their perspectives. Featured speaker Jayson Lusk talked about the challenge of understanding consumer food trends and American Farm Bureau Federation Senior Legal Counsel Travis Cushman announced the organization’s lawsuit challenging California’s strict livestock production laws.
During the convention, Farm Bureau counties were recognized for their advocacy and service to members. County delegates also gathered to approve legislative policy and elect Farm Bureau leadership for the coming year. Policies were updated on federal milk marketing order reform and eliminating feral hogs, among others.
The more than 500 delegates re-elected MOFB Vice-President Todd Hays, a hog farmer from Monroe City.
