Farming Rights Amendment will protect Missouri farmers

To The Herald-Whig:

Missouri Amendment 1, or the Missouri Farming Rights Amendment, will protect all farmers and ranchers, big and small.

According to the Farm Bureau, "Amendment 1 will create the regulatory certainty necessary for agriculture to remain viable in Missouri and help guarantee that families in future generations can continue to farm and ranch across our state."

More than 400 ag groups are supporting this amendment and I plan to vote yes for it, too.
