SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Hundreds of people who provide education to farmers across the nation will be gathering in southeast South Dakota this month.

The National Association of County Agricultural Agents is hosting its annual meeting from Sunday through Thursday in Sioux Falls.

Association president Mike Hogan says the event will focus on ways that agricultural extension and the land grant university system can continue to spur changes in rural America.

The event will include workshops, seminars and tours to provide participants opportunities to network and develop professional skills.

The tours will take place in South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska. They will focus on various topics including bio-energy production and conservation practices.

This year’s gathering marks the association’s 100th anniversary. South Dakota last hosted the annual gathering in 1979 in Rapid City.
