Organizer Brunel Sabourin said his parents were part of the original organizing committee 35 years ago. The event was started in conjunction with Manitoba Agriculture. He says they are now seeing a third generation of volunteers helping to run the show.

St. Jean Farm Days is known as being the unofficial start of the farm show season.

“This year we’re going to be talking a lot about the late season/wet fall that we had and what it’s going to look like for next spring because not a lot of fertilizer went down last fall, so it’s going to potentially cause some logistics issue come spring time and there’s a lot of fields that got rutted up with the high rainfall that we got,” said Sabourin. “We’re going to be dealing with compaction issues and cleaning up those ruts, putting fertilizer down.”
