CHS Farm Family of the Year

The Cope Family
Crane, Mo.

Operating a cow-calf operation and raising alfalfa, rye and other hay grasses keeps the Cope family very busy in Crane, Mo. This fourth-generation farm family, which became a Century Farm in 2010, is passionate about agriculture. “We come from a long line of farmers and intend to stay that way,” says Michelle Cope. “We look forward to teaching our children about farming and why it’s so important.”

Several members of the family attended Missouri State, and the Copes are long-time Bears football fans.
