2019 World Ploughing Contest

The World Ploughing Championship is held in a different country every year and this year it is in Baudette Minnesota. The event only comes to the US every 30 years.

To kick off the beginning of the event there was the Unveiling of the Cairn. The cairn is a monument that will stay in Baudette as a memorial of the event.

Today was the unveiling of the Cairn of Peace at the 2019 World Ploughing Contest held in Baudette MN. A total of 50 competitors from 28 different countries will compete this week in the contest. Joe Henry from Lake Of The Woods MN Explains.
