The Seehafer's 850-acre farm, located on Highway 97 north of Marshfield, is operated by Ken and Karen Seehafer and their son Jesse and includes 250 milking cows. Ken and Karen have a daughter Holly who lives and works in Eden Prairie, Minn. They also have four grandchildren.
The farm has been in the family since 1930 when Ken's grandfather purchased 80 acres.
Visitors will not be allowed to walk through the dairy facilities due to biosecurity concerns. However, showgoers can take guided daily tours of the farm on trams.
There are 250 acres of alfalfa and alfalfa-grass mix available for the demonstrations.
Demonstrations will begin at 10 a.m. and include:
• pull-type and self-propelled forage harvesters
• pull-type and self-propelled mower-conditioners
• rakes, mergers and tedders
• large rectangular and large round balers
• blowers and silage baggers
• bale processors and wrappers
The ride and drive area will be expanded this year. There will be skidloaders, telehandlers (all-terrain forklifts), tractors and sprayers available for visitors to ride and drive.
