2021 North Central Seed Show & Ag Expo -

Tentatively Postponed

As it was not an easy decision but the board was in agreement given the current situation with COVID-19 spreading fairly rapidly in our small rural communities we would have to at a minimum postpone the show from our traditional February date. We felt there would be many commercial exhibitors who would be unable to attend due to company policies and general concerns with any large gatherings. We also felt concerned for the audience and presenters who would normally attend our show being exposed to people from multiple communities. We plan on meeting again in November to discuss if there is some other type of programming we could do later in the meeting season. Please feel free to contact us with any questions
