The North American Farm and Power Show begins Thursday and runs through Saturday in the Four Seasons complex on the Steele County Fairgrounds in Owatonna. Show times are 9AM to 5PM Thursday and Friday, 9AM to 4PM Saturday. The show used to be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center in downtown Minneapolis. Many years ago it was moved to Owatonna and also changed to include a Saturday.

The move has brought a lot of money and economic activity to the Owatonna area. It was also well received by farmers and other attendees. Most appreciate not having to drive to downtown Minneapolis and pay to park in a ramp. On top of that, admission is now free! There will be a number of educational and marketing seminars sponsored by the University of Minnesota Extension service. I will be at the North American Farm and Power Show all three days. So, if you see me running around, flag me down and say hi!
