The first day of Wisconsin Farm Technology Days in River Falls came and went seamlessly, save for some long traffic backups and early anxiety by hundreds of volunteers, trying to make good impressions. State troopers, deputies and local police were out in force by 6 a.m., shepherding motorists and shuttle buses. At 9:30 a.m. traffic on westbound Hwy. 29 was stop-and-go from the show grounds all the way into River Falls - about two miles - but the bottleneck cleared quickly. The show grounds remain open until 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, and 4 p.m. Thursday. Gates open at 8 a.m.
