Brownsburg, IN. (January 11, 2018) — Missouri Farmers Care, the statewide coalition of agriculture groups formed to promote modern agriculture, food production and farm life, presented six historic awards at the Missouri Cattle Industry Convention Saturday, Jan. 6. The Missouri Farmers Care Hall of Fame recipients are: Protect The Harvest founder Forrest Lucas, Congressman Jason Smith, Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, Sen. Brian Munzlinger, Rep. and Bill Rieboldt.

The inaugural class of the Missouri Farmers Care Hall of Fame was inducted during the evening banquet held in Columbia, MO. The distinction was bestowed on key leaders who dedicated time, talent and resources to craft and promote Amendment 1, the Missouri Farming Rights Amendment. Passed in 2014, state agriculture groups united under Missouri Farmers Care to endorse the constitutional amendment that protects farmers from harmful, misleading, and unnecessary legislation driven by out-of-state activist groups.

"This honor pays tribute and presents a measure of Missouri agriculture's gratitude to these five outstanding individuals for their lasting contribution to freedom and prosperity of Missouri agriculture now and in generations to come," said Alan Wessler, D.V.M, chairman of Missouri Farmers Care.
