Expo Celebrates Two Decades of Virtual Farm Tours 

MADISON, WIS. – For twenty years, World Dairy Expo has been bringing some of the best dairy operations in North America to Madison through Virtual Farm Tours. The eight dairies selected this year once again span the country and feature the latest in technology, genetics, environmental efforts, on-site processing, deep community ties, and for the first time, dairy goats. During Expo’s Virtual Farm Tours, dairy owners and managers share a visual presentation followed by a question-and-answer segment with audience members. Tours are presented daily in Mendota Room 1 of the Exhibition Hall.
