Missouri Governor Parson forecasts a tough winter for agriculture industry

OSAGE BEACH, Mo. — Missouri’s governor extended the drought alert through the winter months after more than half of the state is still experiencing a dry spell.

Gov. Mike Parson told a room full of farmers and ranchers Monday morning during the annual Missouri Farm Bureau meeting at Lake of the Ozarks that it will be a tough winter for the agriculture industry. He said that consumers should also be prepared because this drought will most likely affect their pocketbooks.

“Mother Nature just takes its course on us sometimes, and we have to try and figure out how we can survive,” Parson said. “It’s nothing something that just ends because summer ends, or grass season ends. It will be a tough winter for many of us, and we’ve got to recognize that.”
