Tour coming to Laclede County

The Laclede County commissioners and the MU Extension announced the first inaugural Laclede County Commission agricultural tour at their meeting this morning (Tuesday). The tour will be one day starting at the Laclede County Courthouse and will feature farms and other agricultural-related items in Laclede County. The tour will be an invite-only and it is tentatively scheduled for October of 2023. Regional Economic Development Specialist of the MU Extension program Dr. Ashley Allen-Brown says they will invite leadership positions, and the tour will happen at multiple locations.

Allen-Brown says every stop will be about 40 minutes and include photos.

The Laclede County commissioners and MU Extension program hope the tour will connect with the county, city, state, and national decision-makers on the importance of agriculture and how it can impact Laclede County.
