60th Wisconsin Public Service Farm Show underway
A spring farm show tradition is back after being called off during the COVID outbreak.
Matt Cullen with Wisconsin Public Service says the 60th annual WPS Farm Show had a very humble beginning at the former Brown County Arena in Green Bay. “That very first show started with just 25 exhibitors and they were displaying the state-of-the-art equipment of the time which included silo unloaders, vacuum pumps, milk coolers, and barn cleaners, and now to where we are at today with approximately 400 exhibitors from 18 different states and two countries this year.”
Cullen says electric and gas utility wants to offer and showcase the products that can help farmers run their operations as efficiently as possible. “Agricultural consultants are here throughout the course of the show and can talk with our customers about ways to use energy efficiently on their farms, upgrades they may want to consider making, as well as using electricity safely.”
And, Cullen says they have partners that can help with upgrades. ”Focus on Energy is a program we want to make sure all of our customers are all aware of because there are rebates and incentives.”
The WPS Farm Show is underway through Thursday at the Experimental Aircraft Association grounds in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
