Relive Golden Expo Moments from Anywhere

MADISON, WIS. – It was a golden atmosphere as World Dairy Expo® celebrated its 50th Anniversary, October 4 through 8 in Madison, Wis. This record-breaking year is due to the world-class events that took place, from the Dairy Cattle and Trade Shows, to Virtual Farm Tours and Expo Seminars.

Throughout the five-day event, eight Virtual Farm Tours were presented from across the country, enhancing the Expo experience for attendees. The tours included farms with value-added products, strong commitments to family and the environment, plans for expansions and more. Complete recordings of the 2016 Virtual Farm Tours are available at, or on the World Dairy Expo YouTube channel, providing a valuable resource for producers at any time. 

Along with the farm tours, Expo Seminars were a key feature at the show. Top researchers and experts came to WDE to aid farmers in expanding their knowledge on topics, ranging from nutrition to the new veterinary feed directive, and farm labor to managing low milk prices. The 2016 Expo Seminars are online as well at the World Dairy Expo website and YouTube channel.

In addition to these online resources, Expo is pleased to share photo and video coverage from the show on its website and social media pages allowing fans to continue to relive the glory and splendor of WDE. The World Dairy Expo YouTube channel includes every Dairy Cattle Show class presented on the colored shavings. features digital copies of Expo Daily Edition, published by Dairy Star, highlighting the stories of exhibitors, volunteers and attendees, alike, the Official Program, published by Dairy Herd Management - filled with judge biographies, featured stories and more - and photo galleries.
