2019 World Ploughing Contest Headed To Minnesota

It only comes to the U.S. once every 30 years. This year, August 30 – September 1, Lake of the Woods Tourism in Baudette is hosting the 2019 World Ploughing Contest. Teams are traveling across the world from a total of 28 countries to represent their nation and have the chance to be named World Champion. Many of the competitors are actually shipping their tractors and ploughs across the ocean for the competition, in which they pull a two bottom mouldboard plough with a tractor and get points based on many criteria. There will be live entertainment, and the International Beer Garden, along with vintage tractor and plough displays, and draft horse and mule demonstrations.
