I’m just a Missouri girl who's been raised on faith, family and farming. From the hog barns to the Missouri State Capitol, from the tractor in the cornfield to the Missouri State FFA Convention stage, I have been and always will be a passionate advocate for agriculture. Hello all, my name is Baileigh Horstmeier. I am originally from the rural town of Fulton, Missouri. I grew up on my family’s farm where we raised hogs, corn and soybeans. My deep-rooted passion for agriculture started out on the farm and it has grown exponentially over the years through the many experiences I have had within the agriculture industry. Along with being around the farm, I also participated in 4-H and FFA.Outside of agriculture, I enjoy tractor pulling, designing floral arrangements, spending time with my family and friends, and playing with my sweet pup, Casen. I am a junior Agricultural Education and Leadership major here at the University of Missouri. I am excited to be writing for Corner Post. I cannot wait to see what writing opportunities and stories come about this semester.
