2023 Missouri Little Miss US Agriculture

2023 Missouri Little Miss US Agriculture is Briley Mason from Bates County.

Briley Mason is the 7-year-old daughter of Myles and Kelsey Mason of Butler.

This year Briley is attending second grade at Butler, Elementary.

In her free time, you can find Briley participating in 4-H events, fishing, reading, playing with my dolls, playing outside, shopping, helping her parents with chores, and spending time with friends and family. Although this is a new journey for Briley, she is so excited to be a part of this amazing organization.

Briley’s love for agriculture began at a young age. A baby to be exact. At a few days old her parents had Briley out in her Papa’s show pig operation learning the ropes and getting her familiar with the pigs.

It wasn’t until Briley began 4-H this last year, that her love for sheep formed. She enjoys showing lambs at a competitive level.

Briley’s parents travel many miles to take her to shows. Briley had a very successful first year and has learned many new techniques and have improved tremendously.

One of Briley’s biggest accomplishments this year was winning Reserve grand champion breeding ewe, 4th overall breeding ewe and champion beginner showman at the Bates County fair.

Briley is so excited to represent her county and spread the word to everyone she knows about the agriculture industry.
