The “Grand Daddy of the Dairy Shows” is heading back to the Alliant Energy Center campus in Madison after a year’s absence. Katie Schmitt, Communications Manager for World Dairy Expo, says the staff is rolling full steam ahead to present a complete show experience September 28th through October 2nd.
Schmitt says that while some contract discussions are still ongoing with Dane County, they’re focused on creating a safe environment for everyone, including international guests, to enjoy all elements of the show. “Of course we know that some travel restrictions may still be in place for some of our international guests, we’re also offering virtual opportunities for them to stay engaged with World Dairy Expo TV and the live streaming of the cattle show from the center ring” Schmitt says.
Discussions regarding the contract extension proposed by Dane County in early March concerning World Dairy Expo’s use of the Alliant Energy Center, a county-owned facility, will take place over the coming months.
