Jennerman leads Wisconsin Farm Technology into the future

A young family visits Farm Technology Days in Clark County last week. FTD General Manager Arnie Jennerman says to be successful in farming has always required special people, and especially families. “You really have to love farming. It’s one of those occupations that’s about much more than money. You have to love the life and really be dedicated to that."

LOYAL, Wis. – In the spring of 2020, Arnie Jennerman was named to succeed Matt Glewen as the general manager of Wisconsin Farm Technology Days, and was scheduled to work with Glewen over a two-year transition period.

But then COVID-19 intervened, and the 2020 show was canceled. The two worked together overseeing the 2021 show in Eau Claire County, but this year Jennerman had full control of the reins as the show moved to Clark County.

Wisconsin State Farmer spoke with Jennerman just a couple of hours after the event got underway on the Dennis and Suzie Roehl farm south of Loyal, and he was quick to acknowledge the work of the local volunteers. “This is the first one where I’ve been on my own,” he said. “But the people in the host county do most of the work putting the show together, and they’ve done a great here in Clark County.”
