Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days 2017

Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days 2017 Welcome to Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days page! The three day agricultural show will be hosted by Ebert Enterprises, July 11-13, 2017.
(33)

The Wisconsin Farm Technology Days is the largest agricultural show in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the nation. The three-day outdoor event showcases the latest improvements in production agriculture, including many practical applications of recent research findings and technological developments. Each year, it is held in a different Wisconsin county – on a different host family farm. Kewaunee County is excited to be hosting the 2017 Farm Technology Days. Kewaunee has diverse agriculture which provides 2,058 jobs, about 20.7% of the county's workforce and contributes $423.9 billion in economic activity, more than 25% of the county's total economic activity. The county has more than 176,735 acres, or 81%, used as farming ground. This includes cropland, rangeland, pasture, tree farms, and farm forests. Sales of Christmas trees, fruits and vegetables, greenhouse, nursery and floriculture add strong agriculture impact totaling $2.1 million per year. Leading the list of agriculture impact is milk at $190 million per year followed by grain at $33.95 million per year. Agriculture in the county is extremely diverse, and in addition to dairy and grain, includes a wide range of livestock and horticultural crops. The direct marketing of vegetables, meat and poultry, cheese, and fruits is a rapidly growing segment of Kewaunee agriculture.

Three and a half years have passed since the conclusion of the 2017 Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days show and the executive committee is pleased to unveil its biggest contribution to the community. A project in cooperation with the Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department is nearing completion and will be ready for winter fun!

The Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department is excited to soon open the new Dana Farm Ice Skating Rink, a project primarily funded with a generous donation from Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days 2017.

The outdoor ice skating rink, which is located at N3787 Ransom Moore Lane, Kewaunee and adjacent to Winter Park, is freezing over and will open as soon as weather permits. It will be lighted and free to use, but visitors must bring their own skates.

On site, visitors will have access to the property’s newly constructed park shelter with public restrooms that can be used year-round, which includes those taking advantage of the 27-hole disc golf course that winds around Winter Park during the warmer months.
The total project cost of the Dana Farm project is estimated at $100,000 as it also included restoring the historic cabin on the property.

“This is the childhood home of Ransom Asa Moore, who is known as the ‘Father of Wisconsin 4-H’ and a founder of the UW-Madison Department of Agronomy. Moore also developed the UW-Madison Agriculture Short Course Program, which is still a thriving program at the University today. It was built in the 1850s and it’s the agricultural connection that interested Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days 2017 in the project to ensure its viability for years to come,” said Aerica Bjurstrom, Agriculture Agent with Extension Kewaunee County and Executive Committee Member of Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days.

Visitors will be able to ice skate at the Dana Farm property seven days a week from the hours of 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. during the winter season as long as the ice is in good condition.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer ice skating as an additional outdoor recreational opportunity right next to Winter Park - Kewaunee County, where visitors can snow tube, ski, snowboard, and snowshoe. We just need the temperatures to drop further for solid ice and we can open for skating,” said Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation Director. “Now, unlike Winter Park, the ice rink is an unsupervised activity, so it will be used at your own risk, and if we need to clear snow from the ice, we ask that visitors be patient.”

To check on conditions at the Dana Farm Ice Skating Rink, call the 24/7 Kewaunee County Promotions & Recreation Hotline at (920) 388-7199.

The Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days 2017 thanks the Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department, Kewaunee County Board of Supervisors, Kewaunee County government, and Ebert Enterprises, this project would not have been successful without their support! Thank you to our many local vendors and contractors who did outstanding work on this project.
