Animals on a farm are to be expected, but what do you do when those animals are wildlife rather than cows, pigs or chickens? University of Wisconsin-Madison/Extension wildlife specialists provide advice and technical information about wildlife on the farm to people who stop at their display in the Progress Pavilion.

UW-Madison/Extension specialists will be on hand to test your knowledge of Wisconsin’s 500+ wildlife species, including birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.

Wondering what animal left tracks on your farm? Through the use of wildlife specimens, visitors to the display can improve their identification skills and make wildlife watching more fun.

Experts will also be on hand to talk with visitors about habitat management practices they can use to attract desired wildlife, as well as suggestions for resolving wildlife damage problems on the farm.

Wisconsin Farm Technology Days will be held Aug. 25-27 in Dane County. For more information about Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, visit www.wifarmtechnologydays.com .

Agriculture and natural resources is a program of the University of Wisconsin-Extension in partnership with local, state and federal government in each Wisconsin county.
