The Wisconsin Farm Technology Days attracted thousands to our county last week. It is by far the biggest agricultural show of its kind in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the nation.
The three-day outdoor event by all accounts was a huge success. Attendees enjoyed great weather, great food, endless exhibits and plenty of entertainment.
I was drawn by the fact that when it comes to the great outdoors, farming is no doubt a major player. Portage County alone has more than 1,000 farms and 280,000 acres in agricultural production.
