We Need a Show is now available for purchase from the Hoard's Dairyman bookstore.

We Need a ShowBooths are deconstructed, cows are headed home, and the 49th edition of World Dairy Expo is wrapped up. If you had the opportunity to be on the grounds this year, you might have heard the buzz surrounding We Need a Show, the book commemorating the 50th anniversary of World Dairy Expo.

The book outlines the first 50 years of the show from its humble beginnings as the brainchild of a single passionate Wisconsin dairy farmer to the place where the dairy industry meets today. Along the way, the show saw many great successes on the colored shavings and in the aisles of the trade show. Most importantly, the last 49 years witnessed the coming together of many great people.

If you were unable to attend World Dairy Expo this year or didn't get a chance to stop by to purchase your copy of We Need a Show, you are in luck. The limited edition book can be purchased beginning today through the Hoard's Dairyman bookstore.

If you would like to know more about the book or the people behind it, check out the Hoard's at Expo blog coverage. Listen to excerpts from the press conference at World Dairy Expo here or learn more from two of the founding families here.
