Wisconsin Farm Technology Days - Recap Day 2

July 12, 2017

Farmers love talking about the weather. Whether it’s checking the forecast, worrying about the amount of rain for their crops, or reminiscing about the “storm that topped them all,” it’s a topic that our rural community can always count on.


Rain is a popular topic, especially this summer. Although the forecast at first didn’t look forgiving, it turned out to be another fantastic day in Kewaunee County. I met more great business owners and saw a lot of familiar faces too.


There's one more day to join me at the Wisconsin Farm Technology Days!






In 2018 we have a lot to look forward to. One project that I can’t wait to see unveiled is Wisconsin’s Agricultural Education Center. This $13 million project will include:

  • A 29,000-square foot discovery center with educational displays and hands-on learning opportunities.

  • A birthing barn where visitors can watch calves being born

  • A 300-person conference center

  • An opportunity to tour Grotegut Farm

  • A café’ and country store featuring Wisconsin Products and an outdoor playground

  • An educational display showcasing the cutting-edge technologies used to serve growing populations around the world



Had to get my picture with the internationally recognized and self-proclaimed “Grillologists” Mad Dog and Merrill.




I had a blast at the Rural Mutual and Farm Bureau Tent today learning about the many ways we can stay safe and save lives, especially in agriculture. From a texting and driving simulation, to learning how first-responders are being trained in agriculture-related accidents, I left learning a lot more about safety.

























It’s not dirt, it’s soil. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service has an 80-foot soil pit to discuss all things conservation and soils.
