The 59th annual Wisconsin Public Service Farm Show is set for March 26-28 at the Experimental Aircraft Association Grounds in Oshkosh, Wis. About 20,000 visitors attend the show, which features demonstrations of the latest farm technologies and equipment, and boasts a wide range of agricultural services.
More than 450 exhibitors from 23 states and three countries have already signed up for this year’s event.
“We expect nearly 500 exhibitors from all over the U.S. and Canada, demonstrating about $30 million worth of equipment and machinery in about 430,000 square feet of exhibits,” says Rob Juneau, who manages the show for WPS. “It’s an awesome display of the latest ag technologies. The goal is to have active farmers attend and see what’s new in an effort to provide solutions to help them improve their overall operations, whether big or small.”
Juneau says admission is free. There is a $3 fee for parking.
Juneau expects to see farmers and agricultural professionals from all over Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois and even Canada. Some of the show features will include ventilation systems, lighting, watering equipment, computerized and internet ag applications, milking and barn equipment, seed, feed and fertilizer, manure handling and livestock products, field machinery and parts, tractors, and essential farming equipment.
“It’s amazing to see how far the industry has come since we’ve been hosting this show, now in its 59th year,” Juneau says. The advancements of technology greatly enhance the farmer’s ability to be more efficient and productive. Wireless internet technology allows everyone in the industry to have instant information at their disposal for record keeping, production, feeding and all aspects of farming.
WPS agricultural consultants will be available for consultation and will be demonstrating a state-of-the-art farm wiring system during the three-day show.
