The state’s largest agricultural show of the years gets underway today in Dane County.
More than 600 exhibitors will be on site for Farm Technology Days, taking place on the Statz Brothers farm near Sun Prairie. Executive Committee Chair Bob Wipperfurth says there will be plenty for people to see in terms of new machinery, products and other services, with a 70 acre tent city and about 300 acres more of demonstrations.
Wipperfurth says the show also provides a chance to show off Dane County’s agricultural offerings, along with the 20 percent of the state economy the industry accounts for.
The show, which moves locations each year, runs through August 27.
