If you live near Marshall, Mo. and care about agriculture, mark your calendars for 7:00 p.m. on Oct. 26 at the Martin Community Center. There two agriculture organizations will join four Missouri legislators to host a town hall meeting to discuss the threats facing agricultural producers.

Representatives from Missouri Farms Care (MFC) and Sante Fe Agri-Leaders are expected to lead the discussion according to the Marshall Democrat-News. Missouri state Sen. Bill Stouffer (R-Napton), and state representatives Joe Aull (D-Marshall), Caleb Jones (R-California), and Mike Lair (R-Chillicothe), are also expected to attend. 

The announcement made by MFC specifically names the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) as a threat. HSUS sponsored the controversial "puppy mill" Prop B ballot issue that narrowly passed in 2010. The issue was later revised by state legislature.
