In just a week-and-a-half, Portage County will play host to perhaps 75,000 visitors over a three-day period. Not many events around here draw that type of crowd.
Farm Technology Days is coming to Portage County Aug. 12 to 14.
It’s the first time since 1982 that the county will be the site of the annual statewide exposition. 32 years ago, Farm Progress Days – as we knew it then – took place on the James Burns and Sons farm north of Almond. This time around, two neighboring farms will act as hosts – Feltz Family Farms and Blue Top Farms in Plover.
