Dispatch from Southwest Minnesota

Mark Steil.jpgMark Steil, who covers Southwest Minnesota for Minnesota Public Radio News, talks about important stories on his beat during Morning Edition with Cathy Wurzer.

Mark discussed how state farmers have harvested most of their soybean crop and are making strong progress harvesting corn — and how the value of crops has risen sharply this year.

He also talked about the sale of the Agri-Energy ethanol plant in Luverne to a Colorado company, and the addition of the Wood Lake Battle site on the National Register of Historic Places. That’s the site of the last fight in the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862.
