Upcoming Events


The first two weeks in February are going bringing great opportunities to Williston for farmers and those in the agriculture industry. February 7-9th is the 64th Annual National Hard Spring Wheat Show which is located at the Grand Williston Hotel, 3601 2nd Ave W, Williston. All meals will cost $10 a person.  We are looking forward to this year’s show as we will be having staff from North Dakota State University Extension Service and Montana State University Extension Service to explain their newest information on soil, fertilizers, pesticides, varieties and more. Along with Extension personnel, we have regional specialist coming to present on topics such as grain outlooks, marketing, diseases and soil health. Great line up for the presenters and also something new coming for the photo contest. This year the show added a youth division (18 years of age and under) along with the previous Advance and Novice divisions. Those interested in exhibiting photos can enter in the following categories; people, landscape; equipment; animals and miscellaneous.

Another great event is the 17th Annual MonDak Pulse Day; Keep Your Pulses Profitable. This event rotates between Sidney, MT and Williston, ND. This year it is being held on Wednesday February 15th, at the Grand Williston Hotel, 3601 2nd Ave W, Williston. This event costs $25 at the door or $20 if you pre-register, www.ag.ndsu.edu/edu/willistonrec/events or at 701-774-4315 . This is a great opportunity for those interested or growing pulse crops in our region to learn the newest information on inset management, crop scouting, disease identification, variety development and much more. A topic that might be of good discussion is with John Dhuyvetter and how to utilize pulse crops as livestock feed.

Both of these events are eligible for Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) credits. The 17th Annual Mondak Pulse day has Montana Pesticide applicator credits available for dealer, commercial, research and private.
