Technology has transformed a great many things and now the Pennsylvania Farm Show can be added to that list.
Attendees to the event - which runs from January 7 to 14 - have noticed that exhibitors have been using the latest technology to attract them, according to the York Daily Record.
Booths feature everything from interactive videos to the Wii video game system, which helps engage a modern audience, Cindy Weimer, director of industry image and relations for the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association, told the news source.
"Today, people are several generations removed from the farm," she said. "This is a way for them to see what it is really like on a modern dairy farm."
The Pennsylvania Farm Show, which is in its 96th year, is the largest indoor agriculture event in the U.S. with 10,000 competitive exhibits, 6,000 animals and more than 400,000 attendees. The whole event is spread out over 24 acres in 11 buildings and three arenas. In addition, The Farm Show Scholarship Foundation has given out more than $886,500 in scholarships since it was established 18 years ago.
