MPA Presents Award to Representative John Wiemann

Columbia, Mo.,–Francis Forst, outgoing chairman of the Missouri Pork Association (MPA), presented the Outstanding Legislator Award to Representative John Wiemann (R-103rd District) during the 2019 Missouri Pork Expo on February 12. Representative Wiemann was chosen for his outstanding support of the Missouri Pork Association, the Missouri pork industry and all of agriculture.


“Representative Wiemann certainly recognizes the importance of agriculture,” said Forst. “He understands the impact that legislative and regulatory decisions have on Missouri’s number one industry.”


This past year, Representative Wiemann successfully sponsored legislation providing much needed regulatory clarity for Missouri Agriculture. While from an urban district, not only does he understands the importance of agriculture, he brings much needed common sense and the ability to cut through the clutter and get things done. Representative Wiemann is one you can count on to stand up and to the right thing.


Pork producers from across the state attended the 2019 Missouri Pork Expo held in Columbia, Missouri on February 12-13. Highlights included a trade show, educational sessions and guest speakers.


The Missouri Pork Association represents the state’s pork producers in the areas of promotion, research, education and legislation. For more information about this or any other programs of the Missouri Pork Association, go to, or call the Missouri Pork Association office at (573) 445-8375.
