You may see some farmers ditch the fields for the biggest dairy-related convention in the world this week in Madison. The World Dairy Expo kicked off in Madison on Sunday with almost an entire week of exhibitions, demonstrations, seminars, and other events dedicated to the industry. Tony Brey was making his way to Madison to watch one of his cows get exhibited and to participate as a Holstein Association USA, Inc. Director. He says it is an excellent week for the dairy industry to get together and learn from one another.
Youth from Door and Kewaunee counties also participated in the World Dairy Expo this week as a part of the exhibitions. The Gaedtke and Kroll families of Luxemburg saw their fall heifer calf take 30th place and their junior two-year-old cow take second. Victoria and Derek Christoph showed their junior three-year-old cow to a fifth-place finish.
Ron’s Wisconsin Cheese in Luxemburg will also be recognized for its award-winning mozzarella string cheese and flavored cheese curds as a part of the World Dairy Expo Championship Cheese Contest.
