Barron County is preparing for a wave of agricultural enthusiasts to gather at Breezy Hill Dairy, host of the 2013 Farm Technology Days. From July 9-11, the public will have an opportunity to view a dairy that incorporates land management practices such as no-till, minimum till, grassed waterways and filter strips.
As the state’s largest agricultural show, 100,000 people are projected to attend the three day event to learn the latest in farm technology and conservation. This year DNR will have a plethora of program staffs on hand at the show to answer questions about wildlife, farm runoff, trees and high capacity wells. DNR also is teaming up with University of Wisconsin-Extension to provide onsite testing for nitrates.
For youth, DNR is sponsoring a kids fishing clinic at 11 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. on July 9 in the Youth Tent Indoor Stage.
Among DNR participating programs will be Wildlife Management, Law Enforcement, Fisheries Management, Watershed Management, Waste and Materials Management, Drinking Water and Groundwater, and Forestry.
