The Wisconsin Farm Technology Days being held in Kewaunee County will tread new ground this summer with youth playing a role in planning the three-day event. In addition to the youth committee, kids are helping plan and execute ideas other groups hope to accomplish when over 45,000 people are expected to visit. Kewaunee County 4-H Youth Development Educator Jill Jorgensen says the event is continuing a great tradition of youth and adult partnership.
As a result of its own success, Youth Committee Chairperson Tasha Schlise says upcoming Farm Technology Days in Wood and Jefferson Counties have added similar groups to their planning efforts. Kewaunee County will host Farm Technology Days from July 11-13 at Ebert Enterprises in Algoma.
