Perham businessman heads to Israel for trade mission, along with Gov. Pawlenty
Local businessman Doug Huebsch of New Life Farms didn't have to shovel any snow during the mid-December blizzard. Instead of checking on his own turkeys, he was checking out Israeli turkeys on a trade mission led by Governor Tim Pawlenty.
Huebsch was one of 35 businessmen accompanying the governor Dec. 11-18. Pawlenty was trying to improve on the $121 million in goods Minnesota sold to Israel last year.
