Madison Meyer, sophomore plant sciences major, and Caleb Simpson, freshman agribusiness management major, were named the 2024 Missouri Farm Bureau Ambassadors at the 109th Missouri Farm Bureau annual meeting at the Lake of the Ozarks during the first weekend in December.

The MOFB Ambassador Program selects a male and female student 17-to-22 years of age to represent agriculture and Farm Bureau for one year. Each Ambassador receives a $2,500 educational scholarship. Throughout 2024, the Ambassadors will represent Farm Bureau during a legislative trip to Washington, D.C., the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia and other events promoting agriculture.

Meyer and Simpson participated in individual interviews and panel discussions against 17 other students from across the state and were selected as ambassadors by a panel of judges.
