After I get these first pictures posted I’m going to wander around and get some pictures of the livestock. Right across from the Exhibition Hall is the Arena and office where cattle need to be checked in. It looks like many or most are already here. Lots of animals being walked around. It’ll be interesting to see if the weather change this week, from hot/humid to cold has any impact on their performances.
As you can see here in front of the Exhibition Hall, there’s not a lot of activity yet. Just some outside exhibitors setting up. There’s lots of space left to fill and the inside already seems very full. I stopped here first to check in at the media room before heading over to the Coliseum where my office is.
As the sign says, “Welcome To World Dairy Expo.” I just got on the grounds and set up in my office but I’ve already got a lot of pictures to show you. This will be a little like a travelogue in a way as I try to give you a flavor of what it’s like on this last setup day. After the event I’ll be taking all the photos and making them available in an online photo album.

Did I mention that there’s a gift shop at World Dairy Expo? Yep. So bring your shopping list.
Maybe you didn’t know that by visiting World Dairy Expo you can actually tour a number of different farms while you’re at the show! They’re “Virtual Farm Tours.”
