Farmers and ranchers from across the U.S. will gather in South Dakota for the National Farmers Union (NFU) annual convention March 14-16 at Rapid City, S.D. The convention will be held at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center.
“South Dakota has a rare opportunity to host one of the nation's largest agricultural conventions, and we're honored to do so,” said South Dakota Farmers Union (SDFU) President Doug Sombke. “It's a chance for us to show our state off to the entire country. Farmers and ranchers from all across the U.S. will be here, and we're excited to have them. We're ready to show them how great this state is.”
SDFU will send six voting delegates to the NFU who will shape the policy of the agricultural organization. Jared Hettinger, of Stickney; Chad Johnson, of Groton; Norris Patrick, of White; and Deb Harwood, of Union Center were elected by the SDFU membership to serve as delegates. SDFU Vice President Wayne Soren, of Lake Preston, and SDFU Board Member Franklin Olson, of Pierpont, will also serve as voting delegates. Many SDFU members from across the state will also be in attendance.
