The weather was perfect and the crowd was steady at the 2013 Farm Technology Days that were held at Breezy Hill Dairy in Dallas, Wis. July 9-11.
Wildlife Management, Law Enforcement, Fisheries Management, Watershed Management, Waste and Materials Management, Drinking and Groundwater and Forestry were the DNR programs that had booths, handouts and staff there to answer questions from visitors.
Attendees were able to get up close and personal with fish from the Red Cedar Basin. The basin runs 1,893 square miles throughout Barron, Chippewa, Dunn, Polk, Rusk, Sawyer, St. Croix and Washburn counties.
Spritz the Water Drop made its inaugural appearance at the 2013 Farm Tech Days in the progress pavilion. The Drinking and Groundwater mascot is all about saving water! It can also be found at the Wisconsin State Fair which is taking place this week, August 1-11th in West Allis, Wis. DNR Park visitors can get their picture taken with Spritz and even get “spritzed with water.” Make sure you stop by the drinking and groundwater booth in the south cabin to pick up free faucet aerators, toilet leak detection tables and other nifty tools to be water-wise in your home or on your farm.
