Dan Hedberg from Claremont won the grand prize at the North American Farm and Power Show that wrapped up Saturday afternoon at the Four Seasons Complex on the Steele County Fairgrounds in Owatonna. The Grand Prize was sponsored by Miners Outdoor & Rec in Blooming Prairie. The grand prize was a Husqvarna 455 Rancher 18 inch Chain Saw package valued at $600. The drawing was held on Friday afternoon at 3:30 pm.

You had to be 18 years old to enter and not a Farm Broadcaster by the name of Jerry from KDHL. Yes, Steve retired and Brock decided that Steve had a good policy that I was not eligible to win! I like to win free "stuff" as much as anyone but it would not look proper if they would draw my name out of the box!  All kidding aside, it was a great 2018 North American Farm and Power Show. Talking with many of the exhibitors they were very happy with the buyers and leads they got from the show.

It is always a little sad when you see all the exhibitors start to tear down their booths and pack them up after the North American Farm and Power Show, the MN Ag Expo, FarmFest, a County Fair or any agricultural event. The bright side is there is always the next year!
