January 3, 2018 | View PDF
Greetings from the National Hard Spring Wheat Show! 2018 will mark the 65th Annual Hard Spring Wheat Show! The Wheat Show will be held at the Grand Williston Hotel and Conference Center from February 6-8. The Wheat Show is a great opportunity to learn more about wheat (spring, winter, durum, and other small grains). Farmers, ranchers or anyone else interested in learning more about wheat can attend.
The first day of the Wheat Show, Feb. 6, is the 36th Annual Bread Fair. This is an event that teaches area 5th graders how to make bread. Each student will be able to take home one fully prepared pan of bread dough to bake at home. If you would like to volunteer to help us out with about 500 students please call our office and talk to Danielle Steinhoff at 701-577-4595 or send an email to: [email protected]
The Wheat Show continues on Wednesday the 7th from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. with NDSU’s “Best of the Best in Wheat Production”. The Speaker Event for this day will be posted when it is finalized.
It is looking like a strong year with several great speakers and guests already lined up. With the approach of a new show is the challenge of several costs to bring in these special guests and speakers. One of the premiere speakers this year will be the Peterson Farm Brothers. In order to bring them to the Wheat Show, the committee is looking for potential sponsors to help us support the costs. If there is an interest in helping sponsor this event or if you know of a company or business interested in this opportunity, please contact Danielle Steinhoff at the Williams County Extension Office or Justin Jacobs at the Williston Research and Extension Center. This event has the potential to reach several hundred people in the area and has the potential to increase the awareness of Agriculture in our community. Please consider a sponsorship.
An online version of the Wheat Show Event Brochure will be posted in January.
