2015 MU Extension Tweedie Agri-Business Forum

The Carroll County University of Missouri Extension Council held its fifth annual Tweedie Agri-Business Forum on Thursday, November 19, 2015 at the Rupe Community Center.  The program this year is titled "Agriculture Priorities in Missouri.”  The speakers were Darryl Chatman, Deputy Director of the Missouri Department of Agriculture and Ashley Lyon McDonald, Missouri Farm Bureau Director of State Legislative Affairs.

Four Carroll County farms have been awarded membership into the Missouri Century Farm Program and were recognized during the Tweedie seminar.

The Carroll County University of Missouri Extension Council sponsors the seminar through funding provided by the Tommy and Garnet Tweedie Estate.  Tommy and Garnet Tweedie were avid supporters of MU Extension and have continued that support by providing, through their estates, annual funding for Carroll County University Extension.  Co-sponsors of the program this year include Ag-Power Inc., Bank21, Bartlett Grain Company, BTC Bank, Carroll County Savings & Loan, Carroll County Trust Company, Carroll County Farm Bureau, Goppert Financial Bank (Norborne), and Home Savings & Loan Association (Norborne).
