Jan. 7, 2020

BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has named Jamen Windish as the recipient of the 2020 Weed Control Partner Award.

Windish was the 2019 president of the North Dakota Weed Control Association and has been a Barnes County weed officer for four years. Prior to that, he worked six summers for the Stutsman County weed board.

“Jamen goes above and beyond the normal requirements of a weed officer,” Goehring said. “He shows great leadership in project management and takes the initiative to keep in touch with other weed officers across the state.”

Goehring said during the time Windish has been with Barnes County, they have increased the number of townships they manage by fourfold. Windish also continues to help with Stutsman County field days and never hesitates to help where needed.

“Jamen displays great communication and collaboration with North Dakota Department of Agriculture,” Goehring added. “He utilizes state and federal funds well to ensure noxious weeds are kept under control in his county.”

Deputy Agriculture Commissioner Tom Bodine recently presented the award to Windish during the 2020 Commissioner’s Noxious Weed Forum in Bismarck.
