Formerly held in January, the MonDak Ag Days and Trade Show was moved to March due to the declining attendance over the last couple years, as January weather doesn't generally cooperate with the event that draws people from multiple counties. Banquet Tickets are $40.00 and are available at the Richland County Extension Office, the Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture, Stockman Bank, Tri-County Implement, and Farm Equipment Sales in Culbertson, Bainville, and Glasgow.
