The MNP Exhibition building on Island Park Portage was packed with producers as the CFRY/Country 93 Farmer Appreciation Lunch took place Thursday,

Thousands of dollars in prizes were handed out, and later this morning, we will find out who wins the Grain Max Hopper-Bottom Bin from Meridian Industries worth over $25,000! Listen live in the 8 a.m. hour to see who it is.

We thank the farmers across the Central Plains and in the Interlake for keeping us fed! Many traveled well over an hour to be there with ballots coming from places like Plumas, Eriksdale, Petersfield, Carberry, Starbuck, Iles De Chenes, Swan Lake, and more.  

Thank you to our partners who made this event a success.
