On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, farmers, ranchers and agribusiness professionals will explore the Dakotafest grounds in Mitchell, South Dakota, viewing product demonstrations and attending educational sessions. Dakotafest Director of Marketing Niki Jones says it will be good to have an in-person event. “This year, we have 450 exhibiting companies. We also have so many things lined up from an educational perspective.” On the opening day, there will be a Congressional update. “Senators Mike Rounds, John Thune and Representative Dusty Johnson will be on-site with us at 11 a.m. talking about agriculture policy on the Hill. Later that day, there will be a panel of experts talking about the cattle markets.” A climate-smart agriculture forum will happen on Wednesday and then, on Thursday it’s all about Women in Agriculture. Check out the full agenda.
