Visitors to Wisconsin Farm Technology Days are invited to sample a variety of educational exhibits from University of Wisconsin-Extension and several state agencies at the Progress Pavilion.
Visitors to the Progress Pavilion can ask UW-Extension experts questions about everything from ailing plants to what type of soil you have on your property; get a free, on-the-spot test of well water for nitrate, visit with UW-Extension Master Gardeners, and find a variety of UW-Extension publications.
UW-Extension exhibits also include:
- Testing your skills and knowledge about raising a hog and selling a hog at the youth and agriculture exhibit.
- Learning how AgrAbility provides counseling and adaptive equipment to help farmers with disabilities or chronic illness stay in farming.
- Managing Wisconsin wildlife that may live on your farm.
- Participating in the Biggest Weed Contest. This annual event asks that participants to bring no more than two plants (stems only please) of non-woody, non-poisonous plants cut at the soil surface.
- Understanding the connection between geology and groundwater in Wisconsin.
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 .
