Perhaps the most important farm show in the Northern Tier states, Minnesota's Farmfest provides the opportunity to preview new products that aren't necessarily on display at shows in the more southern states.

This is the land whose farmers brought 22-in.-row farming into our consciousness, where sugar beets budge in as an important crop along with corn and soybeans, where rocks are nearly as noxious as weeds and insects, and where livestock face challenges unlike those in less frigid areas. Farmfest's new products reflect the unique qualities of this region.
