Hot time in Tent City: Farm Tech Days this week

Everybody’s feeling the heat, but some of our colleagues feel it more than others. Those of us who work in air conditioning take our hats off to those who don’t. Among others, that includes those in fields, farm buildings and greenhouses. It also includes dozens of CALS and UW-Extension faculty and staff who are spending this week in or Tent City at 2012 Farm Technology Days in Outagamie County. Needless to say, this is one event where everybody will be talking about the weather—as they have been for weeks. A good way to get a sense of the range of drought-related questions coming to specialists in disciplines related to ag, natural resources, horticulture and family living is to read through the posts at Drought 2012 website maintained by UW Cooperative Extension’s Ag and Natural Resources program.
