Journagan Family Donates Ranch to Missouri State University
Missouri State University announced Feb. 12 that the Journagan family donated its 3,300-acre ranch with equipment and facilities, including about 1,000 head of cattle. The ranch is located just 10 miles south of the Mountain Grove, Mo., campus. The second largest single private gift in the 104-year history of Missouri State University – in excess of $7 million – will provide almost unlimited opportunities to expand and transform the university’s William H. Darr School of Agriculture, according to Missouri State officials.
The first part of the gift was completed in December with the transfer of 243 registered Hereford cows. And with this transfer, Missouri State now has the largest Hereford herd in the country that is associated with a university.
