WFTD Announces Schedule Adjustment
2021 show will not be taking place at the Jefferson County Fair Park
Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, Inc. announced that the 2021 show will not be taking place at the Jefferson County Fair Park as previously planned. They will be focusing their efforts on the 2020 show in Eau Claire County and the 2022 show in Clark County.
“We listened to our exhibitors” said Matt Glewen, Wisconsin Farm Technology General Manager. “After more than 60 years of on-farm shows, they felt the combination of a slow agricultural economy coupled with a non-traditional off-farm site would not have the level of appeal to attract the large numbers of attendees needed to host a successful show”.
The Wisconsin Farm Technology Days state board is excited about the prospects for the upcoming 2020 show slated to be held at the Silver Springs horseradish farm in Eau Claire County. Silver Springs, the largest horseradish producer in the world, will be opening up their farm to provide attendees an inside look into the world of horseradish production. Attendees will have the opportunity to see and learn how horseradish is grown and harvested. Also on tap will be a tour of nearby Nellie’s Holsteins, a recently constructed 200 cow dairy operated by the Nelson Family.
Clark County, the host of the 2022 show is in the process of selecting their host farm. The announcement of the 2022 host farm family will be coming out very shortly.
