Allan Dragseth and Roger Odegaard are third generation sugarbeet farmers. Together they co-founded the Red River Sugarbeet Museum in Crookston. Allan is the current president and Roger is the vice president. They both had exhaustive collections of memorabilia related to both sugarbeet farming and sugarbeet industry in the Red River Valley, much of which they have donated to the museum. They have acquired many antique and vintage pieces of equipment for the Sugarbeet Museum, and much of it has been restored. In addition, Allan has collected old movies featuring sugarbeet harvests from the last fifty years and has converted most of them to narrated DVDs for public viewing.
