The County Extension Agent is key

Since Wisconsin Farm Technology Days is the property of the University of Wisconsin Extension that means the county extension agent is always heavily involved as Executive Secretary for the show. This year that job belongs to Greg Andrews. He has been in Pierce County for over 25 years and has seen a lot of changes during that time. Like other areas, there has been a lot of modernization and consolidation in farms but the sprawl from the Twin Cities has prompted growth of small, hobby farms as well. Another big influence in the area is the University of Wisconsin River Falls especially the college of agriculture.

He is excited to have the show in Pierce County, the first time ever and welcomes the chance to show off agriculture in his county. The fact that tent city will have one of the biggest footprints ever is evidence of the strong support for the show from the area.
