ALTOONA, Wis. (WEAU) -- The largest farm show in the state of Wisconsin could be coming to Eau Claire County.
According to officials with the Eau Claire County UW-Extension office there’s a proposal that the county hold Farm Technology Days in 2020. The last time Eau Claire held the show was when it was called Farm Progress Days in 1992.
Mark Hagedorn says the three day farm show typically draws in 40,000 to 60,000 visitors, and he says it could have an economic impact for the area of $1.2 million to $1.8 million.
“I think it would be good for the economy, it would be good for the area, it would be great for agriculture,” said Hagedorn.
Hagedorn says if it is approved by the Eau Claire County Board, the board will have to approve a $20,000 in seed money. Then a bid has to be presented to a board in Madison
