Missouri Farming Associations – Livestock

Missouri affectionately referred to as the Show Me State, is known for the St. Louis Arch, Lake of the Ozarks, and the Kansas City Royals. Additionally, Missouri is also an agribusiness state. The landscape is filled with open fields and rolling hills perfect for farming. Many are surprised to learn that Missouri ranks 3rd in the nation for the number of farms with over 95,000. In fact, there are over 77,000 milk cows, 75,000 meat goats, 12,000 milk goats, and 100,000 sheep. There are also over 19M turkeys and 3.25M hogs on farms and lots. The cattle industry alone contributes $1.6B to the state economy and supports more than 40,800 jobs.

Many farmers face the same challenges regardless of crop or livestock focus. Concerns about productivity, legislative changes, tax issues, and operations often make the top of the list. While advisors like Adams Brown, Strategic Allies, and CPAs, help farmers and ranchers navigate tax, accounting, audit, and other financial challenges, it is important to be aware of the various industry associations and groups that provide other essential types of support.
