Abstract Submission Guidelines - Division
The first 50 registrants will be transported by bus to an apiary approximately 30 miles outside Fargo, where we will spend up to 90 minutes learning about honey production. (A little known fact is that North Dakota leads the nation in production of this commodity.) The second stop of the tour will be at Prairie Rose Meadery in South Fargo. The meadery, which has won national awards, is owned and operated by a technician in the NDSU Department of Plant Pathology. In addition to being an opportunity to sample some world-class meads, lunch will be provided by Carnivore Catering* at this stop. The last stop of the tour will be at Fargo Brewing Company. Brewery tours will be provided to those interested. Steve Edwardson, the Executive Administrator of the North Dakota Barley Council, who many consider to be a look-alike twin of Nicholas Cage, will say a few words about North Dakota barley production while you are free to sample products of the operation (the first of which is on the house). Participants will be returned to the hotel in plenty of time for the opening reception Tuesday evening. *According to their website, Carnivore Catering "is an organization comprised of graduate students in the NDSU Animal Sciences Department. Established in the 1980s (the) group specializes in preparing and serving seasoned (meats), slow cooked to a juicy and tender perfection." Your lunch will consist of beef brisket, bun, baked beans, salad and a dessert. Ticket Price = $50
