Gov. Dayton gives keynote speech at Farmfest, highlights ag opportunities

Gov. Mark Dayton will talk about opportunities in Minnesota agriculture when he gives the keynote address Thursday morning at Farmfest.

The big farming exhibition near Redwood Falls draws many politicians, even when it’s not an election year. Sen. Al Franken was there earlier this week. So was Republican gubernatorial candidate Kurt Zellers, and Republican Senate hopeful Mike McFadden is there Thursday morning.

Dayton’s office said he would talk about “new investments made in Minnesota’s agricultural economy this session that support agricultural research and development, provide assistance for entrepreneur farmers, and give farmers more options to help improve water quality in the state’s lakes, rivers, and groundwater.”

Farmfest runs through today.
