Ag on the Plains is no dull subject. This year we covered lots of topics in Dakota Farmer to share with readers across North and South Dakota. Some of our favorites included:

  • Soil health and management

  • Adding cybersecurity to the farm

  • How a cow and a red Solo cup are connected

  • Problematic drain tile ruling

We also shared stories of perseverance and farm life. A herd dispersal can mean the end of a legacy. But one local ranch turned it into a new opportunity.

Thank you for following along with Dakota agriculture these past 12 months. We’re excited to share more great local ag with you in 2024!
