Pemiscot County Farm Family of Year
The Bradfield Family for being chosen as Missouri Farm Family for Pemiscot County for 2019!
Toby and Kelli Bradfield and family of Portageville were among the families honored during the 61st annual Farm Family Day, Aug. 12 at the Missouri State Fair. They live just south of Portageville.
Each year, the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state that are active in their communities, involved in agriculture, and/or participate in local outreach and extension programs such as 4-H or FFA.
The Bradfield family operates a farming operation that includes cotton, corn, soybeans, rice, hay, and also owns TRG Livestock, LLC. Both Toby and Kelli are fourth generation farmers. Their two youngest children, Gray and Railey, are actively involved in the Clay County, Arkansas 4-H club and High School Rodeo. Their oldest daughter, Taylor, is employed by the Farm Service Agency in Pemiscot County. The family’s favorite part of farming is being outside, having fun, and seeing their hard work pay off.
The annual event is sponsored by five partner agencies: the Missouri Farm Bureau, the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri State Fair Commissioners, the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, and MU Extension and Engagement.
