The eyes of agriculture were focused on Kewaunee County Tuesday as Wisconsin Farm Technology Days officially opened to the public at Ebert Enterprises in Algoma. Opening ceremonies included comments from State Secretary of Agriculture Ben Brancel and Governor Scott Walker. After declaring it Farm Technology Days in the state, Gov. Walker said this is a great showcase of the farming tradition in Wisconsin.
Three generations of the Ebert Family were introduced in recognition of their operation being the host farm in 2017, but a humble Randy Ebert made sure he thanked the 1,800 volunteers making the event possible.
