Chris Douglas drives a combine while working at The Wilson Farm about a mile from Hallsville on Friday. Both Douglas and his father Larry Douglas, who is driving the other combine, were farming soybeans in the afternoon. They own and rent a total of 3,000 acres in Boone County. Agriculture plays a big role in Missouri's 44th House District. Much of the district is rural, with only a small portion inside the Columbia city limits.
