February 1, 2010 Ag Column


The fishing tournament is over and now we move forward to the next exciting thing coming up in the ag world.  The Ramsey County Crop Improvement annual meeting is coming up a week from Wednesday, February, 10.  The K.C. Hall will host the event and the meeting and sponsored noon lunch will finish off a very educational day.  Dr. Edward Usset (University of Minnesota) will be the featured speaker.  He spoke at our annual meeting two years ago and presents his marketing strategies with the use of a game.  He is very personable and delivers a thought process that allows you to determine if what he talks about could fit into your present marketing scheme.  He will present “Grain Marketing is Simple (it’s just not easy)”.  So mark your calendar for 9 am coffee and Ed to begin at 9:30, February 10, K.C. hall.  A very short annual meeting will be held at the conclusion of Ed’s visit.

Commodity elections to held!!!!

Ramsey County Crop Improvement annual meeting will be the location for the election of our commodity elections.  Commodity groups needing to be filled year will be Sunflower, Corn and Barley.  THE ELECTIONS WILL BE AT 11:15 AM at the K.C. hall.  If you are interested in becoming a county representative please be present during the election process and have someone nominate you for the commodity position you would be interested in running for.  Each election will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
