Each year a family from each county is recognized on Farm Family Day at the Missouri State Fair. This year, Barry County was represented by three generations of the Emil Rosewicz family. The Rosewicz farm is located three miles southwest of Monett, where the family raises registered limousin cattle. Emil Rosewicz also serves on the Barry County Extension Council.

Farm Family Day provides the opportunity to honor one outstanding farm family from each county.
