Accu-Steel is preparing for another trade show and possibly the last one for 2017! We will be set-up at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, WI.
What is the World Dairy Expo?
The World Dairy Expo is a five-day dairy cattle event that features the newest technologies available to the dairy industry. This annual show is considered the largest and most important dairy cattle show in North America. The World Dairy Expo has been held in the first week of October since 1967!
Shows and Contests –
Dairy cattle from all over the United States and Canada are exhibited at the show. All seven nationally recognized breeds have their own show. A grand champion from each breed is selected, then a final judging is held to determine the best two cows in the show. This is held on the last day and is often referred to as the main event! The show starts with an introduction of each cow and leadsman listing both of their achievements. After this is done the cows are judged by all of the breed judges from the past week. After they decide on a cow, the Supreme Champion and Reserve Supreme Champion is announced.
The World Dairy Expo offers conferences for youth in the dairy industry. There are several regional and national judging contests in which teams and individuals from high school FFA chapters and 4-H programs can compete. There is also a division for Collegiate level teams. Contestants compete for honors in dairy judging, dairy foods, and dairy forage. There is a separate junior cattle show for contestants who are college age or younger. Though this cattle show is separate from the main show, the Supreme and Reserve Supreme champions are named the same way as the older contestants. Winning the junior show is almost as prestigious as winning the main event!
Trade Show –
This Expo is home to the largest dairy-focused trade show in the world! Nearly 850 companies, including Accu-Steel, come from all over the world to showcase their products to the show’s 75,000 attendees. These companies make the trip to Madison, Wisconsin, USA every year.
Accu-Steel will be located at the Alliant Energy Center in the New Holland Trade Center, booth #866. The show starts October 3rd, 2017 and ends October 7th, 2017. We will see you there!
