A variety of events will be held throughout the week. In addition to revealing the winner of the farm safety placemat contest, the county presidents from around the state are attending a Council of Presidents meeting in Bismarck today.
In addition, many county Farm Bureaus are holding events througout the week. Whether it is a grocery giveaway, donations to local food pantries, or sponsoring coffee in local restaurants, county Farm Bureaus are calling attention to the importance of agriculture in our state, and the role Farm Bureau plays in promoting and growing agriculture opportunities in North Dakota.
