2019 Missouri State Fair Queen, Chloe Momphard, Continued Her Reign Over the 2020 Missouri State Fair

Chloe Momphard

Chloe Momphard is honored to be serving as the 2019 Missouri State Fair Queen and to have continued her reign over the 2020 Missouri State Fair.  Chloe is the daughter of Douglas and Margaret Momphard of Troy, Missouri. She graduated from Troy Buchanan High School in May of 2018. Having grown up in an agricultural-based family and community, she appreciates the strong roots and opportunities her involvement in agriculture has provided and how it has helped her grow. Chloe was crowned the Lincoln County Fair Queen in 2018, making her eligible to compete at the Missouri State Fair.

Chloe now attends the University of Missouri – Columbia majoring in Animal Science and will be graduating in May of 2021. After obtaining a degree in Animal Science, she will continue her education at the University of Missouri’s College of Veterinary Medicine for her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Chloe plans to return to a rural area as a Food Animal veterinarian working to provide education and growth in animal health and welfare. She has chosen to pursue veterinary medicine because of her passion for medicine, animals, and the opportunity to learn and develop as new information is discovered.

Chloe has been exhibiting projects at the fair through 4-H and FFA ever since she was a little girl. As a Missouri State FFA officer, she was also able to participate in some of the behind the scenes activities such as livestock set up, check-ins, and shows at the fair. Chloe has always had a love for both the Lincoln County and the Missouri State fairs. Whether she was exhibiting livestock or projects, helping with FFA activities, spending time with family at the concerts, or enjoying a Polly’s Pop and some roasted almonds, ‘Fair Week’ has always been the highlight of the summer– a place where her interests and passions collide, and memories were made.

Chloe has been an active member in 4-H and FFA. Growing up, some of her fondest memories are taking care of her sheep and helping grandpa on the farm. As a female in agriculture, she understands how diverse the agricultural industry is and how vital it is for those involved to bring diversity to the industry. This year, Chloe hopes to travel the state and visit the fairs and festivals that showcase all Missouri agriculture has to offer. Due to COVID, she had the opportunity to reign over the 2020 Missouri State Fair and continue her duties for another year attending livestock shows, exhibitions, and county pageants. She hopes to encourage young people, especially young girls, to continue the agricultural traditions of Missouri while finding their place within the industry. Just as the industry is broad, Chloe plans to represent and advocate for all of agriculture, especially animal health, welfare, and science-based regulations and their importance to our state. As the 2019 Missouri State Fair Queen, she wants to share her experiences within agriculture in hopes of informing them of the importance and depth of agriculture and the Missouri State Fair.
