COLUMBIA, Mo., April 19, 2024 – The Missouri FFA Association recognized Cade Claycomb of the Trenton FFA Chapter as the State Star Farmer at the 96th Missouri FFA Convention. He is the son of Clint and Shari Claycomb of Spickard. His advisors are Kabel Oaks and Sadie Stimpson. 

State Star Farmers are chosen based on outstanding production agriculture in the student’s supervised agricultural experience program and active participation in FFA.
