Clark County Farm Tech host farm deadline nears
For Hub City Times
NEILLSVILLE – Clark County farms thinking about hosting the state’s largest agricultural show in three years are running out of time to apply.
The application deadline is Sept. 9 for those interested in hosting Wisconsin Farm Technology Days in 2022. Over 400 acres are involved to host the show; it requires a minimum of 70 acres for the commercial exhibits in “tent city,” 80 acres for parking, and 250 acres of crops for field demonstrations involving tillage and hay harvest.
If any farm feels they do not have enough acres, but many other attributes to the show, farms can also partner with a neighbor and apply jointly. It has been common for two families to partner together to host Farm Technology Days; which was the case in Wood County last year.
