Have A “Dairy” Good Time At WDE

The countdown for the 56th World Dairy Expo is on as there is only a few days until the global dairy industry meets once again in Madison. Do you have everything you need to have a memorable and enjoyable experience?

Lisa Behnke, Communications Manager for World Dairy Expo says the first step is buying your digital admission passes for this year’s event before arriving at the Alliant Energy Center.

“Admission is required Tuesday, October 3 through Friday, October 6 for anyone 12 years old and older,” says Behnke. “Tickets can be purchased online by visiting Expo’s website, as well as through our free mobile event app.”

While you’re in the app, take advantage of all the features to plan your time at Expo. These include custom itinerary-building, interactive maps, and more.

“Something new this year is that there will be no exhibits in the lower level of the coliseum,” explains Behnke. “Instead it will be used for our tours as well as a family lounge for parents to watch the show on TV while the kids play.”

World Dairy Expo 2023 will have a staggered schedule, starting with the Youth Fitting and Showmanship Contests on Saturday. National Judging Contests take place on Sunday morning, followed by the International Junior Holstein Show on Sunday afternoon. Education seminars and the trade show begin on Tuesday, October 3.
