An event showcasing latest agricultural technology is coming to Eau Claire next year, but planning is already underway.
The 2020 Farm Technology Days will be held in Eau Claire at Huntsinger Farms next July.
The event will feature a vintage equipment display that will show how wheat was harvested and processed in the 1950s.
Then the event will fast forward to the present and show off the modern farming techniques that help industrialize the farm to table process at the event’s “innovation square”.
“Innovation square is something we are really excited about. This is going to be a keystone in the center of tent city. It is going to bring together multiple aspects of different types of agriculture that are very noteworthy to the Chippewa Valley,” said UW Extension Dairy Program Manager, Mark Hagedorn.
Hagedorn says that the event planning committee has been hard at work trying to get the event for more than five years. He says they can’t wait to showcase what they have been working on at the event next July.
