Partners in Ag Innovation Conference 2020

Coming to you virtually this year!

The MinnWest Technology Campus and The Kandiyohi County & City of Willmar Economic Development Commission (EDC) would like to thank everyone who joined forces again to co-host the Partners in Ag Innovation Conference on July 30, 2020.The event originated 10 years ago and has evolved from the original focus of animal science startups to a broader agriculture-focused conference bringing together top leaders in the Ag and Animal Science community regionally to hear thought-provoking speakers and network with peers. Specifically this year, we will focus on coming together in synergy as an industry and community and promoting our region as a vibrant agriculture cluster.


We recognize that we are all navigating so much uncertainty at this time and now more than ever, we need to come together as an industry, as a unified Ag community even if it is virtually.We hoped that you were able to attend live stream. However, if you were unable to attend during the event on July 30, you can still watch the event.We would love your feedback! Please go onto the above website and fill out our survey under the “EVENT SURVEY”.
