World Dairy Expo hosts Madison area fourth grade school children for a fun, interactive guided tour of World Dairy Expo. Kids get to see some of the most beautiful dairy cows and calves in North America and learn about the different breeds of dairy cattle and how they are judged in the Showring.
Students will see the milking parlor equipment and hear of the processes that the industry uses to ensure a high quality, nutritious food product. Animal nutrition, health care and comfort are discussed during the tour of the grounds including modern agriculture equipment to view and feed samples to touch and smell.
