You know we have a lot of international visitors here. Did you know we sometimes put them to work?
The Swiss Valley Farms booth had three exchange students working there this morning. They were from (l-r) Japan, Taiwan and Germany!
I’ve heard of a coat room at a banquet. How about a cheese storage room at a farm show?
I’ve been putting off buying some cheese here in the America’s Dairyland Marketplace because I can’t leave until Sunday. I didn’t know that the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board is offering to store your purchases in a refrigerator until you’re ready to leave.
How handy is that? Great idea.
This is not a quiet game. The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board is running “Jeopardairy” in America’s Dairyland Marketplace.
I was told that yesterday a goup of guys played and when they won a question they all rang their cow bells.
Learning about all the new technology and products that companies have to offer isn’t the only thing you’ll find in the exhibit area.
In the AT Plastics booth you can try your hand at putting with some nice rewards if you’re successful.
Besides having a place to relax and check email the exhibitor lounge also serves as a good place for an impromptu meeting.
I’m sure these guys are discussing serious business. They wouldn’t be talking football now would they?
Although there’s not a publicly available computer center, the exhibitors who are working here do have a lounge area with computers that allows them to check and send email.
It sure is handy being able to take a break and get caught up back at the office! Each time I’ve stopped by here all the computers are in use.
They’re not as “visible” as the shows, sales and exhibits but there are a lot of different seminars that are offered to people attending Expo.
This particular seminar was being held this morning in the Exhibition Hall and put on by Harvestore.
As you can see from the schedule there’s lots of flexibility in when you can participate in some of these educational sessions.
The National Dairy Shrine has an exhibit here at Expo and some of its board members like Tommy Martin, seen here on the left. Tommy is an old friend of mine that I haven’t seen in over 15 years. He’s also here working for Merial.
National Dairy Shrine brings together dairy producers, scientists, students, educators, marketers and others who share a desire to preserve our dairy heritage and keep the dairy industry strong. Founded in 1949 by a small group of visionary dairy leaders, National Dairy Shrine now has over 17,000 members encompassing virtually every facet of the industry.
