Farm Tech. Days underway in Barron County
DALLAS - Wisconsin’s largest farm show began today in Barron County. The 60th annual Farm Technology Days runs through Thursday at the Breezy Hill Farm near Dallas, owned by Alex and Mary Olson.
Over 600 exhibitors will feature the latest in farm technology and practices. There will be field demonstrations, speakers, displays, and entertainment.
Attendance has varied in recent years. About 40,000 people went to last year’s show near New London in Outagamie County. The year before, around 60,000 showed up when the event was held near Marshfield in Marathon County. Farm Technology Days highlights a different type of farming each year – and that’s the main reason it moves around the state. A few years ago, the show’s organizers said no to a permanent location that was offered in the middle of Clark County’s dairy country.
Dairy will be the focus of this year’s show. The host farmers milk around 500 cows.
