Milan, Mo. ― Jarred and Missy Sayre and family of (Milan) were among the families honored during the 64th annual Missouri Farm Family Day, Aug. 15 at the Missouri State Fair.
The Sayre family was selected as the Sullivan County Missouri Farm Family by University of Missouri Extension in Sullivan County and the local Farm Bureau. The family includes Erin Hinkle, Brett, Brady and Avery Sayre.
Each year, the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state that are active in their communities, involved in agriculture, and/or participate in local outreach and extension programs such as 4-H or FFA.
The Sayre family helps operates a 290-acre forage and beef cattle operation. The Sayre Family has been actively involved in agriculture and agriculture education for many years. Jarred has been an Agriculture Educator for over 26 years, with 22 of those here in Milan. Jarred and his family help on his fathers cattle farm. Erin Hinkle also earned a degree in Agriculture Education while Brett is pursuing a degree in Agriculture Business. Jarred and his family have always loved working on the farm and promoting the agriculture industry.
The annual event is sponsored by five partner agencies: the Missouri Farm Bureau; the Missouri Department of Agriculture; the Missouri State Fair Commissioners; the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; and MU Extension.
The event showcases the impact that Missouri farm families have on the economy and heritage of the state, said Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe. “These families are involved in agriculture activities in their communities and are active participants in local outreach and extension. As the premier showcase for Missouri agriculture, the Missouri State Fair is most certainly the appropriate place to celebrate these families.”
