Dairy cattle producers and industry enthusiasts will be visiting World Dairy Expo Oct. 1-5 in Madison. More than 70,000 visitors from 90 countries are expected to experience the “Center of the Dairy Universe” event.
“World Dairy Expo is known as the largest dairy-focused event in the world, and the event serves as a launchpad for new technologies and services,” says Janet Keller, World Dairy Expo communications and public relations manager.
According to Keller, producers attend Expo for a variety of reasons.
“They’re in search of the latest management tips and products to incorporate into their home operations,” she says.
More than 850 exhibiting companies from 28 countries will be unveiling their newest products and services at this year’s show. The huge Expo trade show offers a wide array of modern dairy farm equipment and products in the Outdoor Trade Mall, Arena, Coliseum, New Holland Trade Center and Exhibition Hall. Everything from robotic milking systems to large TMR mixers to computerized cow health monitoring systems will be on display.
