Chris Chinn, a member of the Missouri Farm Bureau's state board, was recently picked by Gov.-elect Eric Greitens to become the director of the state’s Department of Agriculture.
Chinn, an agriculture advocate who farms with her family in Clarence, Missouri, has served as a county farm bureau president and was chair of the American Farm Bureau Federation’s national Young Farmers & Ranchers Committee.
Chinn also has participated in AFBF’s Partners in Agricultural Leadership program, a two-year intensive training program that provides agricultural leaders with executive-level skills.
“Chris is a fighter who cares deeply about our farmers because she is one,” Greitens said in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch article.
