Wisconsin’s Farm Technology Days still on, for now
The manager of Wisconsin’s Farm Technology Days says he’s watching how the coronavirus situation closely in case the show has to be called off. Matt Glewen says, “We’re probably going to have to make a decision by early May if the show is going to be postponed or not.”
Glewen tells Brownfield the show, so far, is still on for July 21st through the 23rd in Eau Claire county, but that could change if the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t let up soon enough.
Glewen says if the 2020 show is called off, they can easily reschedule for next year. “The show for 2021 that was going to be held at the Jefferson Fair Park was cancelled about a year ago, so we have 2021 open, so we’re hoping that if it turns out that we need to postpone the show, it would simply be held next year.”
Glewen says Farm Technology Days isn’t immune from the effects of COVID-19, which will affect a lot of things this year. Glewen says he realizes a late decision might create a crop rotation challenge for the Eau Claire county host families.
