Farmers, agricultural leaders encouraged to attend event Nov. 16-17 in Osage Beach

The Missouri Governor’s Conference returns Nov. 16-17 to Margaritaville Resort in Osage Beach for its 50th celebration of agriculture. Held every other year, the 2023 event will be hosted by the Missouri Department of Agriculture and Gov. Mike Parson.

“Agriculture remains the backbone of our state’s strong economy,” Parson said. “At this conference, you will hear firsthand how our administration’s priorities are making a lasting impact and bringing greater opportunities to farm families and communities. Together, we are moving Missouri forward, and we are not done yet.”

Farmers, ranchers, agribusiness leaders and aspiring agriculturalists are invited to attend the two-day conference, which includes a jam-packed program with a nationally recognized speaker lineup. The popular “Best of Missouri Grown” reception will also showcase the state’s best food and beverage products. MFA Incorporated is among the conference’s sponsors.

“I’m proud to serve alongside Missouri farmers and ranchers and always love this opportunity to come together,” said Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn. “We hope these two days provide valuable information, connections and optimism as we move toward 2024.”
