Earlier this month, Cole spent a week in St. Louis as a member of the 2009 Missouri AgriBusiness Academy.

He toured Learfield Communications, the Brownfield Network, and FCS Financial in Jefferson City, then headed off to St. Louis.

While there, they visited the Gateway Arch, Monsanto, Theis Greenhouse, Osborn & Barr, and several other agriculture related businesses. They had a chef from the University of Missouri give them an etiquette lesson in fine dining, and speakers from such organizations as the Missouri Beef Council challenged them concerning the exciting future of agriculture in Missouri. The final day, they toured Stone Hill Winery in Hermann, had lunch there, then headed back to the Capital Rotunda for a commencement ceremony.

He had a great time. What a wonderful opportunity. A great big THANK YOU to everyone who recommended that Cole be selected for the AgriBusiness Academy!!
