Our Program

The Missouri Department of Agriculture’s Domestic and International Marketing Program provides a variety of marketing services and has successfully linked Missouri’s producers of processed foods, including meat and poultry, food ingredients, feed ingredients, identity preserved grains, forestry products, and purebred livestock to buyers throughout the U.S. and around the globe; resulting in millions of dollars and increased market exposure.

Agriculture is Missouri’s number one industry, and the businesses and producers that are the backbone of our economy are as impressive and interesting as the products they produce. The Show-Me Missouri Agriculture series was created to highlight not just the wonderful products and businesses that we have, but to celebrate the uniqueness of our vast landscape and share the stories of the individuals behind these operations. In addition to our website, you can find these stories featured in our quarterly newsletter and posted to the Missouri Department of Agriculture’s social media accounts. We hope you enjoy reading about your fellow Missourians as much we enjoy sharing these stories!
