OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - One of the state's largest annual farm shows is getting underway in Oshkosh.
The 54th annual Wisconsin Public Service show runs Tuesday through Thursday at the EAA Grounds. It normally attracts around 20,000 visitors.
The Public Service utility in Green Bay started the farm show in 1960, to promote the use of electricity on the farm. Since then, the event has expanded into a showcase for the latest farm equipment, machinery, tools, and services.
About 465 exhibitors are on hand. Farmers can get their energy management questions answered by WPS agricultural consultants. The show also features a three-day silent auction to benefit the Wisconsin FFA Foundation.
