Next week as I head north for the 2016 World Dairy Expo I am expecting some cooler temperatures. As a girl born and raised in the beef industry, I look forward to this event each year as I learn more and more about our world’s dairy suppliers. This year’s #WDE16 should not disappoint as we all help celebrate it’s 50 year anniversary. Again this year, we would like to thank New Holland Agriculture for making our coverage possible.
For the first time ever, World Dairy Expo is launching a new texting feature to allow Expo fans another option to stay up-to-date with the Dairy Cattle Show. Starting October 4, and running through the completion of the show on October 8, cattle show enthusiasts will be able to receive placing updates from the Showring on their mobile devices.
To sign up, simply text WDERESULTS to 727-493-3976 – or 727-4-WDEXPO – and follow the prompts to choose any combination of Breed Shows, including the option of receiving results from all of the shows.
“The goal of this feature is to allow attendees to stay in touch with what’s happening in the Showring no matter where they are – somewhere else on the grounds or at home in the barn or a field,” explains Liz Matzke, WDE Attendee Services Manager.
In addition to this new tool, ExpoTV will continue to supply livestream coverage of the Showring. For attendees on-site, live coverage is positioned around the Alliant Energy Center to give you the opportunity to follow the Dairy Cattle Show while walking though the Trade Show and visiting with Commercial Exhibitors.
To save time at the show, attendees are encouraged to visit Expo’s mobile friendly, interactive website. It’s home to Innovation Unveiled, a page highlighting new products in the Trade Show, a food guide, complete with hours, location and menu of all dining options found on the grounds, and interactive maps that allow attendees to preplan their path through the Trade Show.
