|Bourgault SEEding is Believing - 2014 Field Days, St. Brieux & Minot|
Bourgault had another successful set of field demos in both St. Brieux SK & Minot ND on July 9th. Field conditions were challenging, more so in Minot which received 3/4" of rain on Monday. But the Bourgault team were able to set the drills to best meet the challenge so farmers were able to see the advantages of Bourgault seeding equipment first hand!
