    Ag Arama originated in 1975 when Gary McVey, Ph.D., was head of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Division. He was notified of a “margin of excellence program” with a four-day deadline to submit a proposal. The proposal was approved and Truman Tilleraas served as the first advisor. Ag Arama would provide a way for University of Minnesota Crookston (UMC) students to have a fun break while enduring the long Minnesota winters. This would come in the coldest Minnesota month of January. Many accused Ag Arama of causing the cold weather and certainly there were years when a blizzard or extreme cold limited the attendance. Ag Arama included livestock showmanship, crops/horticulture competitions, agriculture business salesmanship, natural resources games, royalty coronation, and a dance. Not all events were incorporated in year one nor were they all completed every year, but the majority of events were included most years.
