Nearly 500 exhibitors are expected for this year’s show in Oshkosh, Wis.

The 58th annual Wisconsin Public Service Farm Show is set for March 27-29 at the EAA Grounds in Oshkosh, Wis. The annual three-day agricultural expo attracts about 20,000 visitors. The show features demonstrations of the latest farm technologies and equipment, and boasts a wide range of ag services.

More than 450 exhibitors from 23 states and three countries have already signed up for this year’s show.

“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,” according to Juneau. Admission is free; there is a $3 fee for parking.

Juneau expects to see farmers and ag professionals from all over Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois and even Canada. Some of the show features include: ventilation systems, lighting, watering equipment, computerized and internet ag applications, milking and barn equipment, seed, feed and fertilizer, manure handling, livestock, 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 58th year,” Juneau says. Technological advancements have helped farmers to be more efficient and productive. Wireless internet technology allows producers to have instant information at their disposal for recordkeeping, production, feeding and all aspects of farming.

WPS ag consultants will be available for consultation and will be demonstrating a state-of-the-art farm wiring system during the three-day event.
