Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/18/2016
Farmers in central Wisconsin will have the opportunity to attend a new local farm show next month. North Country Enterprises of Wisconsin announced it will sponsor a new farm show in the Wausau area in February of 2016.
It will be called the Greater Wisconsin Farm Expo and will occupy some 55,000 square feet of indoor floor space. The show dates are February 2-3 at the Central Wisconsin Expo Center in Rothschild. Outdoor exhibit space will also be available for the
display of farm machinery, dairy equipment and related agricultural products.
North Country Owners Bill and Sally Henry say the former Patriot Center offers about 1,500 parking spots, large overhead doors for easy access of large machinery, and some 575 hotel rooms located within walking distance.
The show will be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. with free parking, admission and health clinics. Wisconsin's Alice in Dairyland Teyanna Loether will be present on the opening day, along with Wisconsin Author Jerry Apps.
The Central Wisconsin Expo Center is located on I-39 and Highway 51 at Exit 185, south of Wausau.
North Country Enterprises has been conducting farm shows since 1975.
