Farm Technology Days 2017 starts in Kewaunee County

 Farm Technology Days kicks off Tuesday in Kewaunee County.

It's billed as the largest agricultural show in Wisconsin and one of the biggest in the nation.

The three day event showcases the latest improvements in production and farm technology.

Ebert Enterprises is this year's host farm. Randy and Renee started their farming career raising heifers and crops after purchasing the farm from Randy's parents in 1987. Randy is a sixth-generation farmer. They have 3 children, Jordan and twins Whitney & Britney. They also have 40 full-time and 15 part-time valued employees.

The couple started milking cows in 1997 and now have 3,000 cows that are milked three times a day. This year, the Eberts are generously donating all the beef that will be served during the 2017 show
and are working with a local butcher to prepare it
