Dairy Cattle Show
World Dairy Expo is home to one of the best known dairy cattle shows in the world. This is made possible by the numerous outstanding breeders, barn crews, owners, volunteers and so many others. In 2013, 1,616 owners exhibited 2,225 head of cattle from 36 states and seven provinces. World Dairy Expo looks forward to hosting you in 2014.
Construction on the new pavilions for World Dairy Expo began April 21, 2014 following the Midwest Horse Fair. The two new pavilions will have 290,000 square feet under cover and will be built over the current 11-barn footprint and will utilize new tie and divider panels. Drawings of the new stall panel can be found here.
