Ag. Secretary Bill Northey Visits Plymouth County Fair
(Le Mars) -- Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey made a stop in Le Mars today to visit the Plymouth County Fair. Northey was given a tour of the fair and the famous round barn by members of the Le Mars Chamber of Commerce Agriculture Committee and directors of the Plymouth County Fair. Northey says he is impressed with the Plymouth County Fair.
Northey says he has had the opportunity to visit many of Iowa's county fairs, but admits Plymouth is unique.
The Agriculture Secretary says he applauds the efforts of the Le Mars Chamber of Commerce Agriculture Committee and the Fairboard for educating the public about the importance of agriculture.
Northey says fairs of the past have been about farm families, learning and growing through projects, but today, he says, they are about reaching out to non-farm families and teaching them about the history of agriculture, as well as the future of agriculture.
