Manitoba Ag Days

Flaman Sales had another successful show in Brandon this year. As per usual, the show was very well attended; many people from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and even a few from Alberta were at the show. We showcased our new “Pull Dozer”, which brought a lot of attention to our booth. The Pull Dozer can be used to improve drainage, level land or move snow.
