A Missouri House committee will tour the agricultural facilities at Jefferson City’s Lincoln University on Monday afternoon.

The tour begins at 1:30 for the House Agriculture Policy Committee, which is chaired by State Rep. Don Rone (R-Portageville). Rep. Emily Weber (D-Kansas City) is the committee’s ranking Democrat.

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, a former Iowa governor, praised Lincoln’s facilities during his February visit to Jefferson City, where he announced a $1-billion federal program aimed at combating climate change and strengthening rural communities.
