World Dairy Expo is just around the corner, taking place at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, Sept 28th – Oct. 2nd.
Lisa Behnke is the marketing Manager for the expo, celebrating its 44th anniversary this year. She promises the event will be bigger and better than ever.
“We have a tremendous dairy trade show, the world’s largest. We expect to have more than 775 exhibitors from 26 different countries, demonstrating the latest and greatest wares you can possibly implement on your own dairy.”
With the theme “Crowning Achievements – Golden Opportunities,” Behnke says some of the new technology on display at World Dairy Expo will include new ideas designed to help the environment, as well as those hard-working dairy farmers.
While it’s a must-attend event for those in the dairy industry, Behnke understands there will be plenty of busy dairy farmers who just won’t be able to get time away from their herds to make it. That’s no problem. She points out that there will be more than 200 journalists from around the country and around the globe, covering the event. Among those is our own Cindy Zimmerman, who will be providing up-to-the-minute updates on this website, as well as AgWired.com, the WDD Twitter feed (https://twitter.com/animalagnews) and her own Twitter account (@FarmPodcaster). Thanks to our sponsors of the coverage: Novus International, Charleston-Orwig, Arm & Hammer, Novartis and Alpharma.
