  • Farm Legacy Auction Updates and FAQ's

  • Aitkin CMCA Beef Show Information
    Held Annually, our Central Minnesota Cattlemen's Association Youth Beef Show will be held on Saturday, July 13th at the Aitkin County Fairgrounds. This is not a 4-H sponsored event, it is however a great learning experience for youth across the state.
  • A note from Virginia .....
    HOLY SMOKES! Can you believe that it's JUNE?! Our busiest month of the year is upon us so there will be a lot coming at you this month-for starters, this newsletter will be chalked FULL of juicy tidbits and helpful hints you'll want to know for our quickly approaching County Fair, you can also expect to receive emails and hard copy mail (and if you're lucky-or unlucky, depending on your position even a phone call from one of us!) Plus, since the show season has begun, there are tons of great opportunities to learn, grow, and compete throughout the summer months; be sure to check out the Upcoming Opportunities article to see if any of them work for you and your show season goals.
