Shawn and Roberta McAfee’s grandchildren represent the seventh generation of the McAfee family to be engaged in farming in Clark County. The McAfee family settled in Clark county in 1838. They raise hay, cattle and Boer goats on their farm. They have been actively involved in the community and very supportive of Clark County 4-H. The granddaughters are the fourth generation in Clark County 4-H. Shawn and Roberta have been 4-H project leaders and Shawn has been a club leader.
They have continued to support 4-H with their grandchildren’s projects. Shawn led efforts to secure funds, plan, and organize the Livestock Committee’s efforts in restoring and expanding the small species barn (twice), building the new cattle barn, and the newly constructed bathrooms for the Clark County Fairgrounds. Shawn is the Pastor of the Peaksville Christian Church, Plant Manager of Henniges Automotive and serves his community through the efforts of St. Francisville Masonic Lodge. Roberta is the Clark County Treasurer. Both have served on the extension council and both serve the community through their efforts in the Kahoka Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star.
Shawn and Roberta have three children, all of whom are active in agriculture. Their son, Andrew lives in Eldon, Iowa and works for a large grain farmer. Their son, Scott and his wife Liberty live east of Kahoka. Scott works at the fertilizer plant in Wever, Iowa and Liberty is a Shelter Insurance Agent. Scott and Liberty also raise cattle. They have five children, Terrigan, Brylee, Kyra, Tristan and Natalie. The oldest three girls are in 4-H and show livestock. They are also in gardening, craft, sewing, photography and cooking projects. Their daughter Emily works at the Clark County Pharmacy. Emily showed Boer goats across the Midwest when actively showing and still has ownership in part of the family herd. The McAfee’s have sold Antioch Boers breeding bucks as far south as San Antonio, Texas and as far east as Quebec Canada.
Shawn and Roberta McAfee were chosen by the Clark County University of Missouri Extension Council as recipient of the 2021 Clark County Fair Family. The Extension Council provides this award to honor families who have through the generations made major contributions to the community, 4-H, FFA, Extension Council and the Clark County Fair.
