Nolte: Honored by Missouri Cattlemen’s Association

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – In recognition of his dedication and commitment to Missouri’s Beef Cattle Industry, state Rep. Jerry Nolte, R-Gladstone, was honored with the 2011 Friend of Missouri Cattlemen award by the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association. The award is given to legislators who are influential in protecting animal agriculture and specifically beef producers in Missouri.

Nolte was selected for the award because of his commitment to the agriculture industry and his recognition of the industry as a major economic sector of agriculture. Throughout his time in the legislature he has supported legislation to assist farmers and promote the agriculture industry.

“Rep. Nolte recognizes the value of animal agriculture and its importance to the state of Missouri,” stated Jeff Windett, Executive Vice President of the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association. “He has been a valuable friend of agriculture and in particular the beef industry.” Windett proclaimed to the attendees at the annual meeting in Columbia that Rep. Nolte has a 100 percent rating with the Cattlemen’s Association.

“It is a great honor to accept this award from the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association,” said Nolte. “During my time in the legislature, we’ve made the sustained growth of our agriculture industry a legislative priority. I’m proud to have played a part in helping to sustain an industry that is an important part of our state’s history and a vital component of our economy.”

The Missouri Cattlemen Association is a not-for-profit, grassroots, member-driven organization focused on protection and promotion of the "economic, educational, political, and social interests of the Missouri beef cattle industry."
