Farm machinery on display for Farm Technology Days
Placeholder Image
MADISON - Farm machinery will be on display from Aug. 25 through 27 during field demonstrations at Wisconsin Farm Technology Days at Statz Bros. Inc. of Sun Prairie.

Hay chopping will be featured each afternoon and chopping corn silage will be featured each morning.

The demonstrations are scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. each day.

The Statz farm has ample land surrounding the 75-acre tent city to allow the farm machinery to work. The host family has 135 acres available for corn and 120 acres for hay-making demonstrations.

Corn silage will be made on fields north of tent city and all hay demonstrations will take place south and southeast of tent city.

An all-in-one forage chopper/wagon from the Netherlands will be on display.

The hybrids planted on the Statz's fields were chosen so they would mature earlier so the corn silage could be harvested for the show. Committee volunteers are also in charge of trams that get visitors from tent city to the fields where equipment is working.
