Situated on the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, the Show Me State has numerous tributary rivers, streams, and lakes to explore. These waterways help irrigate Missouri’s more than 100,000 farms (more than any other state besides Texas). The state’s robust agricultural yield has helped fuel a growing science and biotechnology sector. Monsanto, one of the country’s largest biotech companies, is headquartered in Missouri. Some of the other major corporations based in the state include Express Scripts, Emerson Electric, and O’Reilly Auto Parts. In addition to moving freight along the rivers, the state is home to two of the nation’s three busiest rail centers. Roofstock currently operates in the Kansas City and Springfield investment property markets.
