NDFU's Mark Watne ~ "Walking the Old Road" with Staci Drouillard


Tuesday, January 7, 2020 – Mark Watne is president of the North Dakota Farmers Union. He recently sat down with Prairie Pulse Host John Harris to talk about the challenging times farmers are facing. ~~~ As specialized skills like data-focused farming gain traction among young farmers, some ag education programs want to make higher education more accessible by banding together. Harvest Public Media’s Christina Stella has more. ~~~ Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay titled “Song of the Open Road.” ~~~ We visit with Staci Lola Drouillard, author of “Walking the Old Road.” It’s the story of a once vibrant, now vanished Ojibwe village, and a vital chapter of the history of the North Shore.
