Slight Drop in World Dairy Expo Attendance This Year
USAgNet - 10/10/2019

Attendance was off a bit at World Dairy Expo in Madison last week compared to the year prior. Organizers of the dairy and tradeshow say over 62,200 people from 94 countries came through the gates during the five day event at the Alliant Energy Center. That was about 2,900 less than last year's total count. Visitors from Canada, Mexico, Italy, China, Brazil and Japan represented the top nations with the most attendees, respectively.

This year, nearly 860 companies featured their products and services in the trade show areas.

In the dairy barns, 1,642 exhibitors from 34 states and seven Canadian provinces checked in 2,331 head of dairy cattle this year. For the second year in a row, the Supreme Champion animal of the competition was a 'Cutting Edge T Delilah,' a Brown Swiss cow exhibited by Kyle Barton of Copake, New York.

In the dairy breed sales, the highest lot was found in the World Classic Holstein Sale, which went for $145,000. Over $1.3 million dollars in cattle were sold during that auction auction, with prices averaging over $28,000 per head.

And at the 2019 Champion Dairy Product Contest Auction, 30 lots sold for a total of $27,959

Meanwhile, show coordinators say plans are already underway for next year's event, which is being held September 29 through October 3, 2020. The theme will be 'Instrumental to the Industry.'
