Eighty-thousand visitors took in the International Plowing Match in Earlton last week.

The five-day event wrapped up Sunday and organizers describe it as a success.

Marketing Assistant Mike Pearson says despite the match being a well-publicised event he and his crew were pleased with just how many visitors travelled to Northern Ontario for the festivities.

He says visitors, including the Premier and other provincial politicians got an appreciation for the importance of agriculture nationally, provincially and locally.
