Missouri Cattlemen’s Association Endorses Mike Parson for Lieutenant Governor

Today, the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association announced that they will be endorsing Mike Parson for Lieutenant Governor.

“Mike is a leader on agriculture issues and is the only active farmer running for statewide office.  Mike’s record on agriculture is second to none, and the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association is proud to endorse his campaign,” said Keith Stevens, President of the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association, a cattle producer from Bolivar.

“I grew up farming cattle, and when I got back to Missouri after my two tours in the Army ended, the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association was one of the first organizations I joined.  Farming is not just a part of Missouri’s economy, it is a way of life for many throughout our state, and I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with the members of the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association on a variety of agriculture issues including Right to Farm.  It is an honor to have the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association’s endorsement,” said Mike Parson.
