Humid weather and early morning rains are proving not to be deterrent to the crowds attending this year’s Wisconsin Farm Technology Days hosted by Kewaunee County. Attendees have been lining up daily to check out the different field demonstrations and for tram tours of the host farm Ebert Enterprises. Mark Dillenburg from Kewaunee last attended a Farm Technology Days 50 years when it went under a different name in Manitowoc County. He says it is amazing to see how far technology has come.
The horse arena has also been a popular spot during the first two days of the event with horsemen Chris Cox and Dan James showing off their skills in addition to helping local horse owners with their own riding issues. James, a native of Australia, says he has enjoyed interacting with the guests checking out his shows.
Nearly 10,000 people attended the first day of the three-day event Tuesday, marking one of the highest attended openings in several years. Farm Technology Days concludes Thursday afternoon.
