Peterson Farms Seed announces contest winners

Peterson Farms Seed's "Farm Follies" Foto Contest winners were announced recently at the Northern Ag Expo in Fargo.

The contest was open to anyone capturing a follie-worthy moment on their farm with photo submissions due by Nov. 1. Photos were then posted on the Peterson Farms Seed website throughout the month of November and viewers were asked to vote for their favorite.

"We are very serious about agronomics, seed quality, and taking care of customers, but we think farming should have an element of fun as well," said President Carl Peterson. "Like many things in life, farming mishaps might not be funny at the time, but in retrospect we can smile about them."

Grand Prize winner, receiving a $300 Scheels gift card, was McMillan Farms of Wimbledon, N.D., with a photo of a grain cart mishap titled, "I Didn't Need 1½ inch of Rain!" Sara Gronfeld of Graceville, Minn., took second prize, receiving a $100 Scheels gift card. Gronfeld and Kathrine Plessner of Verona, N.D., tied for third place with each receiving a $100 Scheels gift card.
