What exactly is the World Dairy Expo?
The World Dairy Expo is a five-day event showcasing dairy cattle and the newest technologies available to the dairy industry. Considered the largest and most important dairy cattle show in North America, it has been held in the first week of October since 1967. The Expo serves as a forum for dairy producers, companies, organizations and other dairy enthusiasts to come together to compete, and to exchange ideas, knowledge, technology, and commerce.
