Mark Twain Cave - Hannibal, MO

2019 Youth Industry Tour participants at the Mark Twain Cave before our tour. The cave was discovered 200 years ago by a man trying to catch his dog. Since it's discovery, the cave has been been the site of many stories, the most famous being The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. It is now a historical landmark and hosts many tours each day. This is just one example of the fun that is mixed in with our educational tour stops. 

Southwest Missouri - 2020 Youth Industry Tour

The 2020 Youth Industry Tour based in Joplin and Springfield.

This year's Youth Industry Tour was held in southwest Missouri and featured stops in many rural communities including Miller and Stotts City. Tour stops included Joplin Regional Stockyards, Farmers Market of the Ozarks and Gleonda Angus. Each tour stop provided a look into the agriculture industry in southwest Missouri. Many stops focused on the uniqueness of their operations to the southwest region of the state. The group learned about the business structure of farmers markets where producers are able to sell directly to consumers as well as genetic technology that is being utilized at ShowMe Genetic Services.

It was a weekend full of informative tours, new experiences, and friendships that will last a lifetime. 

The 2021 Youth Industry Tour will be held August 27-29, 2021 in northwestMissouri! More details will be coming soon, so keep a look out!
