As the tents continue to go up in Algoma, what started five years ago is now down to less than 5 days for Kewaunee County UW-Extension Agriculture Educator and Farm Technology Days Executive Committee member Aerica Bjurstrom. It was Bjurstrom‚Äôs idea to bring the largest farm show in the state to Kewaunee County when she started the bidding process five years ago and helped earn it a year and a half later. After dozens and dozens of meetings over the last 1,000-plus days, Bjurstrom says it has been a lot more than she expected, but also a great experience.
Over 40,000 people including 600 exhibitors and 1,700 volunteers are expected to attend the 2017 Wisconsin Farm Technology Days at Ebert Enterprises, which begins on Tuesday.
