The Audrain County Farm Bureau is proud to announce that State Representatives John Cauthorn, Jay Houghton, and Paul Quinn are the recipients of the 2012 Farm Bureau Friend of Agriculture Award.
“This award is in recognition of Representative Cauthorn, Houghton, and Quinn’s voting record on issues of importance to agriculture, their working relationship with farmers in the Audrain County Farm Bureau, and their willingness to take a leadership role in representing Missouri Agriculture,” stated Janis Deimeke, president of the Audrain County Farm Bureau.”
The Farm Bureau Friend of Agriculture program was initiated in 1996 and is designed to give appropriate recognition to legislators serving in the Missouri House of Representatives who are especially supportive of agriculture.
Missouri Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm organization and is active at the local, state and national levels in representing farmers and rural Missourians on issues of importance to agriculture.
