Hey Tiger Fans! My name is Madison Byrd, and I come from the small town of Keytesville, Missouri. This town may not look like much to a stranger passing through town, but to me, this is where my roots are planted deep. Because of my passion for agriculture education, I decided that the science and agricultural journalism program at Mizzou was the place for me. Through my writings, I hope to give the agriculture industry a voice. Besides agriculture, I have a strange obsession for Harry Potter and the Missouri Tigers! My whole family came to the University of Missouri, and I am so blessed to say I get to follow in their footsteps and earn my stripes. I am very excited about my new beginning at Mizzou and I can’t wait to hit the ground running with CAFNR Corner Post! Go Tigers!
