Farm Technology Days wraps up Thursday in Portage County

PORTAGE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Thursday is the last of Wisconsin's annual Farm Technology Days.

The state's largest farm show began on Tuesday at a pair of farms east of Plover in Portage County.

Potatoes are king in that region. And the state's Potato and Vegetable Growers Association unveiled a new promotional vehicle at the show called the "Wisconsin Spudmobile."  

It's a bus built on a converted motorhome chassis, which features the illusion of being in a potato field. It also has interactive displays that describe the varieties, uses, and sustainability of Wisconsin potatoes.

Nick Somers says the Spudmobile will go around the state to educate folks about the value of the Wisconsin potato.  

Around 80,000 people were expected to attend the three-day Farm Technology show, which features the latest in farm equipment plus numerous demonstrations and exhibits.

It's been blessed with great weather so far. Another sunny day is in the forecast statewide, with comfortable highs in the 70's.
