OAKES, N.D. — A North Dakota irrigation pump is crossing an ocean to help a farmer with dry land. It's an exciting day for Dyna Flo, Inc. as they send their first irrigation pump overseas. The Oakes-based company got a call in January from a farmer in Australia looking to buy a pump. Employees say the farmer saw the pump on YouTube and called because pumps like this aren't sold anywhere in Australia, and he lives in a dry region. The irrigation pump is $1,500 pounds and costs $9,500. It can pump 3,000 gallons of water a minute.
