OUTAGAMIE COUNTY, Wis. (WFRV) - The 2012 Farm Technology Days made its way back to Outagamie County after traveling the state for 31 years
It's being hosted at Sugar Creek and Heideman Farms in Sugar Bush, just outside New London.
Day one was hot for families, but that did not stop people from checking out the latest agriculture innovations.
In fact attendance was projected to be around 12,000 people the first day alone.
At the expo you can test drive top of the line equipment.
There are dozens of booths where farmers can ask experts about every seed, feed, and breed.
It is also a chance for people who do not work in the industry to see just how much work goes into getting food on our tables.
The host families are proud of three and a half years of hard work and hundreds of volunteers making the event a success.
"All the money that is profited from the event stays in the county. We will donate it back to scholarships events and things like that. So it really goes back to helping the community" explains Chairman Vic Grimm.
The day was cut two hours short because of strong winds.
People were evacuated from the grounds for safety.
Some small tents, signs and seats blew over.
On the positive side farmers got a little rain, which is so badly needed across our area.
