The tour sought to educate local influencers on the vital and diverse nature of agriculture and explain the role that tourism plays in this industry. Over 30 legislators, community leaders, local farmers and media representatives took to the road for a full day of learning, touring seven ag-related businesses in Martin County. Each leg featured presentations and information outlining the technology of modern agriculture and demonstrating how these businesses support each other and our local economy. Stops included Devenish Nutrition, Hen-Way Manufacturing, ABOVE: Attendees gain new insight into modern agriculture between stops on Visit Fairmont's "Modern Ag Tour of Martin County" Elm Creek Agronomy, CHS, Easy Automation, Trimont Area Wind Farm (Avangrid), and Nick Tonne’s hog barn site. The tour represented a valuable networking opportunity for all those involved. The group finished the day with a trip to the Hugoson Farm to participate in Project 1590’s “From the Ground Up” event. Pork Masters completes 25th year Martin County Pork Producers along with the Agri-Business and Ambassador Committees of the Fairmont Area Chamber of Commerce have joined together to host the 25th Annual Minnesota State Pork Masters Golf Outing on July 24, 2017 at Interlaken Golf Club. This event recognizes the importance of the pork industry to Martin County and the state of Minnesota while raising funds for Ag-Scholarships and Ag-Awareness. Lunch and dinner was provided for the participants at Interlaken Golf Club. There were games and prizes on every hole. Most games, like “Putting For Pork” and “Makin’ Bacon” rewarded skill, while other games like “Ham Slice” rewarded those with lack of skills. Pork producers and agri-businesses throughout the region came to participate in the day-long event.
