It’s time to “show off” agriculture at the Missouri State Fair! Missouri Farm Bureau is welcoming everyone to come to Sedalia, Missouri, for the Fair and has special offers of its own to show off on August 17. It will be Farm Bureau/Farm Family Day at the Fair, and a time to save $1 on gate admission, $5 on a one-day carnival ride wristband, and on reduced admission to the truck and tractor pull.
Discount coupons are free and available at the Audrain County Farm Bureau office located at 113 E Jackson St., Mexico, Mo. 65265. You don’t have to be a member to pick up the coupons, but they are not available on the Fairgrounds and are only valid on August 17.
Farm Bureau offers more than discounts. Stop by the Farm Bureau building on any day of the Fair and drop your name in a drawing to win a John Deere riding lawn tractor. There is no cost to enter this contest and a winner will be drawn after the Fair. Another popular attraction at the Farm Bureau building is the milk house. Cool off from the August sun with a cold cup of milk for only 25 cents. Chocolate is a favorite choice. While you are there, learn about what Farm Bureau is involved in today and discover a little about its past. The organization is celebrating its centennial this year and promises to bring a bit of history to the Fair.
“For 100 years Farm Bureau has been helping rural Missourians. We’ve worked to bring electricity and improved roads to rural areas. We’ve worked tirelessly to provide a voice for farmers and ranchers in our state and national Capitols. We’ve been a part of the State Fair during that time,” Missouri Farm Bureau President and farmer Blake Hurst said. “We’ve done a lot to be proud of during the past 100 years and we welcome you to celebrate with us at the Fair.”
