About Farm Technology Days
The Wisconsin Farm Technology Days is the largest agricultural show in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the nation. The three-day outdoor event showcases the latest improvements in production agriculture, including many practical applications of recent research findings and technological developments. Each year, it is held in a different Wisconsin county – on a different host family farm.
Wisconsin Farm Technology Days provides visitors the opportunity to see and talk with more than 600 commercial and educational exhibitors in Tent City who are eager to visit with them about their machinery, equipment, facilities, products, and services needs. A wide variety of agricultural products and services used in today’s dairy, livestock, and crop production systems in Wisconsin will be on display. In addition, specialists and county extension agents from the University of Wisconsin and state and federal agencies are on hand to answer questions. Educational exhibits, special interest displays, and field machinery demonstrations provide something of interest for everyone.
Since the first show held in Waupaca County in 1954, the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, Inc. – a tax-exempt, educational organization- has guided the annual show. The Board is comprised of representatives of state and federal agencies involved in agriculture and natural resources, the University of Wisconsin, and the agribusiness/industry and farming sectors.
Virtually all activity at the host county level is coordinated and managed by the county’s University of Wisconsin-Extension Office in cooperation with the county’s Farm Technology Days committee and 700-1000 volunteers.
