It will be double the educational opportunities in the Youth Area at Wisconsin Farm Technology Days this year. Chair Cindy Kolzow says the focus is on “toddlers to teenagers” with emphasis in three areas; careers in agriculture, safety in agriculture and livestock education. “All exhibitors will offer hands-on activities to learn about something that is agriculture-related.” Kolzow says farm safety will be the main purpose of those with displays in the youth area. The three area technical colleges which serve Clark County will offer opportunities to learn about everything from animal science to landscape and turf management to drone operations. “Even if you are not from a farm, we hope you can learn a little bit about what goes into producing your food.”
The Indoor Stage will feature the talent of local students and 4-H clubs including the performers from a local dance studio. The Outdoor Stage will offer clinics to learn more about showing animals; everything from dairy to rabbits.
There will also be a tent which will showcase many of the projects available through 4-H and display many of the area State Proficiency Award entries from local FFA Chapters. This tent will also offer various hands-on activities.
The Youth Area is at the corner of 6th Street and Wisconsin Avenue on the west side of Tent City.
Wisconsin Farm Technology Days starts tomorrow (7/12) morning and runs through Thursday and will open from 9am – 4pm each day.
