7:45 a.m. Meet and Leave Max’s Bar & Grill, Olivia MN by 8:00a.m.
Alternative pick-up at Monsanto site 8:30 in Redwood Falls (across from Dairy Queen)

8:30 a.m. Monsanto Pre-Foundation site, Redwood Falls, for a briefing on the exciting new world of soy-beans as new genetics are rapidly ramping up the economic impact of this, America’s 2nd largest crop.

10:15 a.m. Jeffers Wind Turbine tour. Find out why wind energy continues to be a ‘front page’ item and why Minnesota is now the 4th largest generator of wind energy in America.

12:30 Lunch at Shady Inn, Storden
, famous for ‘basket food’, be that a Cheese Burger Basket or a Chicken Strip Basket.

1:30 p.m. Rural Jeffers for an update on the Red Rock Rural Water System and a tour of the Lake
Augusta Water Treatment Plant. This system provides dependable good quality drinking water to 2,000 rural homes, replacing the poor water quality and quantity from individual farm wells.

3 p.m. Goblish Dairy, Seaforth, where 225 dairy cows get milked 2 to 4 times in a 24-hour period and these cows are untouched by human hands. Four robotic milking units do this remarkable job, 24/7, with each cow setting its own schedule as to when it wants to be milked, and how often.

5 p.m. Brau Brothers Brewery Company, Lucan. One of the business success stories in rural
Minnesota is this 2-year old brewery, which now even grows its own hops. Hear the history, and taste the brew.

6:30 p.m. Brauhaus, Lucan
. What could be more logical than Supper at the Brauhaus in little Lucan, population about 240 when everyone is home. Buffet meal of chicken breast or BBQ pork chops, vegeta-ble medley, cheesy potato, snicker salad, bread and lemonade (adult beverages are on own and not part of the tour costs). And once you sip their beer it might be logical to purchase the product to take home.

8 p.m. Return to Redwood/Olivia
