Missouri has more than 99,000 family farms, putting it behind only Texas in the most farms in the United States.

The Missouri Farm Bureau has set aside Feb. 7-13 as “Thank a Farmer Week.” Across the state, counties will be organizing activities to celebrate.

Following “Thank a Farmer Week” is National FFA Week, commemorated this year Feb. 20-27.

Your newspaper has an opportunity to educate readers about Missouri’s farmers and the importance of agriculture with a Newspaper In Education series, “Agriculture is Everywhere!” This 8-part series shares information on Missouri’s natural resources and highlights commodities produced in our state.

Missouri chickens lay more than 2.67 billion eggs a year! One bale of cotton can make 313,600 $10 bills. Menfro is a rich type of soil found only in Missouri and parts of Illinois. Soybeans, are used to make soy inks, which you probably use to print your newspaper. These are just a few of the facts in “Agriculture is Everywhere.”

The new series was produced by the Missouri Farm Bureau in partnership with Missouri Press. Each feature is 4 columns by 10.5 inches and available ready to print. You may download the series at mo-nie.com using the code: moag16. Use all eight features in the series or as many as you can – each works on its own.
