  • The Missouri State Fair is proud to announce two outstanding female agriculturalists, selected in a second annual contest sponsored by Monsanto. Tammy Bartholomew of Archie received the contest title of Missouri Woman in Agriculture, and Ashlyn Richardson of Lincoln received the title of Missouri Woman in Agriculture Rising Star. Each winner will receive a $1,000 cash donation from Monsanto, for a non-profit organization of her choice.

    Mrs. Bartholomew, the winner of the 31 year old and over age division, is a retired agriculture education teacher and FFA advisor, and has served as the first female President of the Missouri Vocational Agriculture Teachers Association. She has been actively involved in several other agriculture-related groups including the National and Missouri Cattlemen’s Associations, and American and Missouri Angus Associations. She and her husband, Steve, and daughters Hannah Bartholomew and Rachel Kagay and her husband Bryant, raise registered Angus cattle.

    Mrs. Bartholomew has been active in the Missouri State Fair for many years, as an agriculture educator, Cass County Farm Family representative and as an exhibitor. The Missouri FFA Leadership Fund will be the agriculture-related beneficiary of the $1,000 donation sponsored by Monsanto.

    Miss Richardson, winner of the 18-30 year old age division, is a senior at the University of Missouri-Columbia studying Agriculture Education-Leadership and serves as a College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources (CAFNR) Student Ambassador. She is an active member of Missouri FFA and 4-H, serving as an officer in each of those organizations. Miss Richardson has attended the Missouri State Fair each year of her life, participating through 4-H and FFA exhibiting cattle. Ashlyn chose the Missouri State Fair Foundation Youth in Agriculture Scholarship as the agriculture-related beneficiary of the $1,000 donation sponsored by Monsanto.

    New to the contest this year were awards for second-place in each age division. Receiving second in the 31 year old and over age division was Marilyn Calvin of Mount Vernon. Receiving second in the 18-30 year old age division was Ashley Bauer of Warrenton. These women will receive plaques for their efforts, and all participants in the contest will receive certificates of acknowledgement in a special reception to be held in their honor Thursday, Aug. 14.
