WDE Tech Spotlight

For years, World Dairy Expo has been the place to introduce new ideas and innovations to the global dairy industry. The World Dairy Expo Tech Spotlight takes this tradition to the next level by creating a platform, both virtually and in Madison, for dairy technology start-ups to formally present their ideas to dairy producers around the globe. To view a list of new technology that will be on display in the Trade Show, check out Innovation Unveiled

In 2021, both the virtual and in-person components of the World Dairy Expo Tech Spotlight were divided into two parts, a showcase of the innovations followed by a panel discussion with industry experts including: Marcia Endres, PhD, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Animal Science, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities; Trevor DeVries, PhD, Professor and Canada Research Chair, Animal Biosciences, University of Guelph; and Jeffrey Bewley, PhD, Analytics and Innovation Scientist, Holstein Association, USA.
