Preparations for the July 20-22 Wisconsin Farm Technology Days outside River Falls shifted to high gear this past week with the arrival of tent-erection crews, contractors constructing display buildings, FarmTech's contracted electrician and portable lighting and generators.

A crew of more than a dozen men from Briggs Tent Co., Eau Claire, arrived with semi-trailers of canvas, poles, ropes and stakes that will transform the majority of 40 acres into a covered display area.
