The state’s congressional delegation will be addressing some 800-expected North Dakota Farmers Union members at the organization’s state convention, Dec. 14-15, in Bismarck.

Senator-elect Kevin Cramer and Representative-elect Kelly Armstrong are expected to speak on Saturday from the podium at the Event Center. Sen. John Hoeven will address the convention by video.

“It’s obvious the ag issues we’ve been raising have been getting attention,” said NDFU President Mark Watne. “We’re excited to hear from our congressional delegation. We look forward to a positive message on the farm bill and updates on trade and other issues that we’ll be working on together.”

The convention is open to the public. To see a complete agenda or to register, go to or call 1-800-366-8331.
