The North Dakota Corn Growers Association hosted a drain tiling luncheon in Oakes, ND, for area growers. Growers were invited to attend this free and informative event held on August 12, 2021, at the “Growing Small Towns” Event Center newly located at 501 Main Avenue in Oakes. Growers that attended heard from a panel of practitioners who work in agronomy, ag finance, wetlands preservation and mitigation, NRCS, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife. The panel talked to the growers about drain tiling projects and answered any questions that the area growers had.

After the drain tiling luncheon, a virtual tour of Quandt Hog Farm was presented. Growers were invited to join NDCGA board members and staff on a bus tour of the Quandt Hog Farm.
