NASDA’s NASS Program Director Charlie Ingram participated in the NASS Heartland Region’s ARMS II/Veg Chem Workshop for Missouri and Illinois held September 24-26, 2018. During the workshop he and Regional Director Brad Summa congratulated enumerator Taylor Young who is Missouri’s 2018-19 Miss United States Agriculture Queen. Miss Agriculture USA is a new non-profit agriculture promotion organization featuring queens of all ages that promote, celebrate and educate about all the diverse aspects of agriculture.
Taylor Young is from Madison, Missouri and has been a NASDA field enumerator since January 2016. Her father Jamie is also a NASDA enumerator. NASDA employs about 70 enumerators in Missouri who collect agricultural survey data on behalf of NASS from farmers and ranchers in the state. Taylor is a student at Missouri State Technical College where she is a double major in Business Administration and Accounting. She also likes to ride horses and barrel race. Taylor was chosen to represent Missouri in part because of her work as a NASDA enumerator and efforts in promoting agriculture in the state. Taylor will be competing for the National Miss Agriculture USA title in June 2019. Congratulations and good luck Taylor!
