We all want to be remembered, to feel that we’ve contributed something to the greater good. We want to know that we made a difference, that our life mattered. We want to know that what we value most will not only live on, but thrive well into the future.
As stewards of Missouri's phenomenal agricultural legacy, our goal is to ignite a passion for agriculture that will fuel the next generation. We "believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds—achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years." ~ FFA Creed
Therefore, we are dedicated to providing the next generation of farmers, ranchers, and Ag leaders a world-class environment in which to:
·Re-connect with their roots & celebrate their heritage
·Foster life-sustaining relationships & agrarian values
·Participate in competitive learning experiences
·Showcase their hard work, accomplishments, & unlimited potential
·Learn about innovations that will improve our world
Never has it been more important than now to invest in the next generation of Agriculture. Join our efforts to ensure the Missouri State Fair continues to serve as the premier agricultural venue in our state.
