NDFB Week 2020
The future of agriculture matters. That's why it's so important to help people understand how farmers and ranchers play a vital role in the future of our food security and abundance. One way we do that is through our NDFB Foundation.
The NDFB Foundation's goal is to give hope to the future of agriculture through the power of knowledge. The Foundation provides education outreach to students and hope for farmers and ranchers when disaster strikes.
For NDFB Week 2020, March 8-14, we hope to increase awareness and contributions to the NDFB Foundation. We will also be holding a drawing contest for students in grades 4 and 5 across the state. This year we are asking students to draw and color why they are thankful for North Dakota agriculture. The students didn't disappoint. There were so many wonderful drawings, we are featuring some of the honorable mentions here:
Counties are holding a variety of activities during NDFB Week:
