Field demonstrations will take place on 390 acres of land that the Gerrits family has generously provided for this popular show feature. This acreage consists of 230 acres for chopping, 100 acres for baling and 60 acres for tillage equipment demonstrations during Wisconsin Farm Technology Days July 15-17 near Greenleaf in Brown County.
Visitors will board trams to ride from Tent City to and from the various field activities. A map including the schedule of events and field locations will be available at the show.
Activities will include mowing of hay Tuesday and Wednesday followed by merging and chopping all three days of the show. Cutting, merging and chopping demonstrations will take place in the mornings and afternoons. There will be round baler and large square baler demonstrations each afternoon of the show.
This year's show will also hold significant tillage demonstrations that include primary and secondary tillage equipment, as well as strip till equipment. Tillage demonstrations will be held every morning and afternoon of the show. Silage defacers and silage baggers will be demonstrated near the bunkers at various times throughout the show, as well.
Seed and fertilizer for the hay demonstration acreage has been generously donated in part by Cropland, Kaltenburg, Barenbrug, BASF, Pioneer, Dairyland, Renk, DeKalb and AgriPartners. Diesel fuel supplied to the machinery manufactures involved in field demonstrations has been donated in part by Cenex and AgriPartners.
