MEDORA, N.D. (AP) -- Top agriculture officials from 12 Midwestern states are gathering in North Dakota.

The Midwestern Association of State Departments of Agriculture is holding its annual conference through early Monday in the Badlands town of Medora.

North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says those at the meeting will get a close look at the state's two leading industries -- agriculture and energy. Medora is in the booming western North Dakota oil patch.

The conference will include panel discussions, field trips and speakers, including Deputy U.S. Agriculture Secretary Michael Scuse.
