Nate Franzen, president of First Dakota’s Agri-Business Division, states, “Mark Thursday, Feb. 21, on your calendar and plan to attend AgriVisions 2019. Chad Colby is a sought-after agricultural technology expert. You will gain a unique perspective on ways to improve performance of your farm or ranch through the use of new technologies. Chad will be joined by Travis Potter, who is a pioneer in the organic food industry. He was involved in organic growing before it was called organic growing. Both our speakers have a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of agriculture. Join us for Agrivisions 2019.”
