Dr. Jon Hagler returns to Trenton and this time will help lead the 29th annual festival parade which is saluting “Honoring Our Agricultural Heritage.”

The Trenton Rotary Club invited Dr. Hagler to participate in the parade recognizing his role in promoting agriculture throughout the state. A native of Dent County in Missouri, Hagler was raised on a farm and today raises livestock, including Missouri Fox Trotter horses, in Moniteau County.

A summa cum laude graduate of Truman State University, Dr. Hagler holds a master’s degree in political science from the University of Missouri-Columbia and a doctorate in political science from Washington University in St. Louis.

Since becoming the state’s twenty-first Director of Agriculture, Dr. Hagler has aggressively worked to promote agriculture’s importance to all Missourians. His energized passion for agriculture has touched more Missourian’s lives than ever before. He has raised agriculture’s profile by emphasizing the importance of this industry and ag-related jobs to the state’s overall agriculture economy.

He has traveled to every county in the state speaking to thousands of farmers, agriculture leaders, consumers and youth on the significance of agriculture to our nation, our economy and our families. Through his leadership, the Department of Agriculture has launched initiatives such as the 10,000 Garden Challenge, the Focus on Missouri Photo Contest, Military Appreciation at the Missouri State Fair, Operation Bank Alert and the George Washington Carver Excellence Awards - all in effort to promote the value and importance of agriculture.

Among his many other contributions have included the re-launching of the Livestock and Farm Protection Task Force and through cooperative efforts of state, county and local law enforcement officials, more than $6.2 million in stolen farm equipment and animals have been recovered and returned to owners.

Dr. Hagler will be riding one of his prized Missouri Fox Trotter horses in the October 19th parade scheduled to begin at 8:30 am. As of this date, over 150 entries plus high school marching bands are expected to participate with more entries anticipated to enter in the next few days. Those planning to make entry in the parade are asked to contact parade co-chairmen Steve Maxey or Rick Klinginsmith as pre-registration is required.
