A new Red River Valley ag celebration is on the calendar. Northern Crops Institute Executive Director Mark Jirik is helping to organize this event. “We’ve seen a tremendous amount of change in this region in the past ten, 20, 30, 50 years and this region is better than most in taking those challenges head on and figuring out how to adapt, change and do better with what we have.” This event will also celebrate the career of Dave Torgerson, who recently retired from the Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers. “Part of this stemmed from Dave not wanting a retirement party and he said it should be about celebrating people and that collaboration. He’s really been a visionary in helping getting things started and creating opportunities.” The Red River Valley Ag Celebration will be held Tuesday at Mentor, Minnesota. Preregistration is requested.
