Farm Science Review attracts upwards of 140,000 visitors from the US and Canada who come to discover 4,000 product lines from 600 commercial exhibitors, to get the most up to date information on farm science and technology, to witness field demonstrations on combines, tillage, nutrient and lime applications, drainage installations, and more.
The Gwynn Conservation Area. a 67- acre demonstration and education area for agriculture and natural resource management practices, is another great attraction. This site is home to a natural stream, wetland, ponds, windbreak plantings, crop tree plantings, wildlife food plots, a soil pit, riparian forests, a dry hydrant and more.
