Missouri Livestock Symposium honors Selway as 2009 Livestock Person of the Year


The Missouri Livestock Symposium is pleased to announce that the late Charles "Charlie" Selway of Williamstown, MO, will be inducted into the Livestock Producers Hall of Fame at an awards ceremony at the Missouri Livestock Symposium on December 4, 2009. His family will be presented with a 20"x24" framed oil painted portrait of Charlie, with plaque, which will be unveiled on the Friday evening of the Missouri Livestock Symposium.

The 2009 Missouri Livestock Symposium will be held Dec. 4 and 5 at the Kirksville Middle School located at 1515 S. Cottage Grove in Kirksville. The Symposium features an agriculture and consumer oriented trade show, educational speakers from 12 states speaking on all species of horses, beef cattle, sheep and meat goats, forages, stock dogs, renewable resources and more. It also features country music entertainment on Saturday night following the conclusion of the Symposium. This year's entertainer is Curb Records recording artist Steve Holy (steveholy.com).

The late Charles Selway spent his entire life, except for the years served in the U.S. Air Force, on the same farm near Williamstown. His love and passion for his Hereford cattle led him to be involved in many aspects of the livestock industry. He owned and managed a herd of 120 Hereford cattle, in later years adding crossbreds. He also had a flock of 80 Corriedale ewes.

Selway was very involved with reorganizing and maintaining the Clark County Cattlemen's Association. He served in the capacity of President, Vice President and State Representative for the organization. He was responsible for obtaining funds to build the 4-H and FFA show barn at the Clark County fairgrounds and seeing that it was constructed. Charles served as an advisor for the Missouri Junior Hereford Association and organized a local judging team that did well across Missouri and Iowa. He held many judging clinics for the youth at his farm and enjoyed working with young people. Charles served 20 years as 4-H beef leader and was a 4-H sheep leader for 12 years. He also served as chairman of the 4-H livestock committee in Clark County for many years. The Selway family also hosted 4-Her's from Japan, Wisconsin and Oklahoma.

Selway was very active in the community. He was a member of the South Wyaconda Baptist Church where he served as a Trustee for 30 years and was on the cemetery board for 28 years. He served on the Clark County Extension Council 6 years, Beef Extravaganza Committee 4 years, and was a Northeast Missouri Sheep Producers director for 15 years. In addition, he served on the Ballard School Board 4 years, Clark County Nursing Home Board 12 years (President for 10 years), was a Lewis County REC Director 11 years, and Associated of Missouri Electric Cooperative director 10 years. Charles was a Shriner for 50 years, served as a member of the Masonic Lodge 51 years, OES member 49 years, Clark County Fire Department Director 21 years, ASC committeeman 27 years, MFA oil delegate 33 years and Scottish Rite member for 50 years.
