The Stutsman County Agriculture Improvement Association will be holding its annual meeting in conjunction with the Winter Ag Expo at 4 p.m. Jan. 8 in the Center W room.

The association will be nominating and voting on two positions to serve on the board of directors. Anyone who is a producer in Stutsman County is a member of the association; we encourage all producers to attend the annual meeting.

You may ask, “What is the purpose of the Stutsman County Agriculture Improvement Association?”

Basically, the association works at the county level to promote, support and allocate new seed increases that come from the North Dakota State Seed Department. But really, the Stutsman County Agriculture Improvement association is so much more than that.

Goals of the Stutsman County Agriculture Improvement Association include:

* To promote every legitimate interest of the seed growers in Stutsman County and to maintain the standing and reputation of the members of this association as reliable seed growers.

* To raise the standard of living of farm families.

* To promote 4-H club work, FFA and other rural community and urban organizations.

* Act in an advisory capacity for extension programming.

* To aid other organizations sponsoring agricultural events.

* To select and sponsor delegates to the annual North Dakota Ag Recognition Day at North Dakota State University.

* Member of the North Dakota Crop Improvement and Seed Association.

As a participant in the Stutsman County Agriculture Improvement Association, or serving on the board of directors, you will experience opportunities to serve the agricultural community as well as preserve and promote reliable seed growers in Stutsman County.
