There may not have been 100,000 people or national politicians in attendance but Plowville's 65th Anniversary and Conservation Field Day still drew a good-sized crowd to the Don and Wendy Stroebl farm on County Road 34, September 19.

Plowville, officially called the National Soil Conservation Days and Plow Matches, was a big deal for Dodge County in 1952. Estimates are that between 100,000 and 150,000 people came out to see the latest in farm equipment and to watch demonstrations and contests of contour plowing.

The event actually took place on several farms along then Highway 14 between Dodge Center and Kasson.
