Dairy enthusiasts from around the world visit with companies to obtain the latest knowledge.

As the global dairy industry meets in Madison, Wis., World Dairy Expo is not complete without the trade show. Tuesday was abuzz as the trade show opened for the first day.

Just as someone spends time and effort on making their cow look their best, companies do the same when planning their displays. Booths are strategically planned to greet and educate guests. Among these tables one would find cutting-edge technology and the latest equipment. Producers can find solutions to benefit their businesses, and others will see the latest advancements the industry has made.

The trade show will be open until Friday with booths displayed in the Coliseum, Exhibition Hall, Trade Center, and Outdoor Trade Mall. Changes to the layout of displays has led to fewer booths downstairs in the Coliseum, but exhibitors can be found upstairs and around the rest of the grounds.

There is a lot of information available on the Expo grounds this week, so to keep track of it all, you can download the World Dairy Expo app to search for and explore booth locations. A map and list of exhibitors are also available in the September 10, 2023, issue of Hoard’s Dairyman, which you can pick up at our booth in the Exhibition Hall. Our booth is also where you can check out the variety of books and manuals available from our Hoard’s Dairyman Bookstore.

We hope to see you at the trade show this week as you explore all of the outstanding science, technology, and information the industry has to offer.

Hoard's at Expo is sponsored by Trioliet.
