After the record 2012 drought, nearly 1,000 farmers gathered for the 27th annual South Dakota Corn Grower's Association convention to talk about how to move forward.
The meeting is one of the biggest single-day agricultural events in the state featuring topics including everything from corn production to marketing and the latest technology.
President Mark Gross revealed what he hopes for when looking ahead to a new growing season.
"Great spring, springtime rains, get our pastures and hay fields going, and enough moisture to get our crop in the ground with the right amount of rain to produce it and feed the world," Mark Gross Said.
Proceeds from the lunch are going to Feeding South Dakota.
Saturday evening's activities include a banquet featuring speakers Congresswoman Kristi Noem and CHS Inc. President Carl Casale.
