Governor Addresses Cattlemen's Convention
Missouri Ag Connection - 01/10/2019
Governor Mike Parson and Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe joined cattlemen at the 51st Annual Cattle Industry Convention. Along with roughly 600 members, the pair attended the banquet honoring youth.
Kehoe opened with praises of membership involvement.
"One of the most successful things I've seen at the state capitol from any statewide organization is Cowboys at the Capitol. I know it's not always easy for you to come and take time off, but being there and putting your message out there is very, very important," said Kehoe.
Parson echoed, highlighting the significance of producers' actions on the future of the industry. He presented attendees with a resolution for the new year.
"Missouri has a lot to be proud of when it comes to our industry. The Cattlemen's Association and the entire agriculture community will continue to keep the future of farming in mind. We will continue to invest in agriculture for the next generation so that we will leave agriculture in better shape than we find it. In this new year, let us encourage young Missourians who want to make a difference in the lives of others through agriculture," said Parson.
In addition, Parson expressed his gratitude toward the organization and it's membership for their support.
"I really am proud to work with the Missouri Cattlemen's Association. As long as I can turn around every once in a while and see that people like you are behind me, I am going to keep moving forward."
