By  | 

WOOD COUNTY, Wis. (WSAW) -- From farming to exhibit shows you are sure to learn something interesting at one of the 600 plus exhibits at this year's Farm Technology Days.

The event is expected to draw thousands to the Wood County area and help boast the local economy.

Dennis Bangart, Executive Chairman of this year's Farm Tech Days, said the event is catered to the agricultural community but is open to everyone. "It shows the newest and greatest technology in agriculture but the event ties in public education."

Some of the exhibits include a cranberry bog where you can actually go into a mock bog on site. "You get a chance to walk in a dry cranberry blog which is on the other end to showcase that cranberries do not grow in water. We use water as a harvesting tool which is what we are showing in this exhibit that they float,"
explained Heidi Slinkman who is working the cranberry exhibit at this year's event.

Marshfield Clinic is offering free health screenings at the event as well to help people be more proactive in their help.

The event runs Tuesday, July 10 to Thursday, July 12th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each. The cost of admission is $8.
