The site preparation for Wisconsin Farm Technology Days is officially underway, and in order to keep set up running smoothly at Ebert Enterprises LLC, the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department is asking drivers to avoid a section of County Road K.

Drivers are asked to find an alternate route around County Road K between County Road D and State Highway 54 near Algoma, as this is the primary route being used by volunteers and vendors who are traveling to the host family’s farm.

“We would like to create as safe an environment as possible for all of those who are working to make this event for Kewaunee County a great success,” Sheriff Matt Joski said.

The state’s largest agricultural show traditionally draws 45,000 people annually over the course of three days, and this is the first time it will be held in Kewaunee County.

“Thank you for your understanding and thank you to all who are working so tirelessly to make the Wisconsin Farm Technology Days 2017 the best it can be,” Joski said.

Wisconsin Farm Technology Days will be hosted July 11-13 at Ebert Enterprises LLC.
