World Dairy Expo 2020 Cancelled

 

MADISON, WIS. – For the first time in its 53-year history, World Dairy Expo® has been cancelled. The World Dairy Expo Executive Committee reached this difficult decision based on the public health orders and restrictions related to COVID-19, in place and issued by Public Health Madison & Dane County. World Dairy Expo 2020 was set to take place at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, September 29 through October 3, 2020. The annual event welcomed more than 62,000 attendees from nearly 100 countries in 2019.

 

“Our collective heart is heavy as we share with you that World Dairy Expo 2020 has been cancelled,” said Scott Bentley, WDE General Manager. “We know how much this hurts; we feel it, too. Please know other options were explored and considered by the World Dairy Expo Executive Committee and staff.”

 

The Alliant Energy Center, home to World Dairy Expo, is a county-owned facility that falls under the jurisdiction of Emergency Order #3 and Forward Dane, the phased reopening plan for Dane County. Public health officials predict Dane County may be in the third phase of the plan when World Dairy Expo is set to occur. This phase includes a limit of 250 people at outdoor events, eliminating any possibility that World Dairy Expo, as people know it today, can take place.

 

“Unwaveringly, we recognize our responsibility is to maintain the health of our community and the safety of all of you as exhibitors, attendees and volunteers and to adhere to the orders dictated by Dane County and the national guidelines from the CDC as they relate to COVID-19,” added Bentley.

 

More information, a complete statement from World Dairy Expo, and answers to frequently asked questions regarding the decision to cancel World Dairy Expo 2020 can be found at worlddairyexpo.com.

 

Serving as the meeting place of the global dairy industry, World Dairy Expo brings together the latest in dairy innovation and the best cattle in North America. Crowds of more than 62,000 people, from nearly 100 countries, will return to Madison, Wis. for the 54th event, September 28 through October 2, 2021, when the world’s largest dairy-focused trade show, dairy and forage seminars, a world-class dairy cattle show and more will be on display.

Wisconsin Summer Championship Show to be rescheduled

Message from the WI Holstein Association:

The Executive Show Committee will be rescheduling the Wisconsin Summer Championship Show from July, to a date and location in late August, due to restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

The Executive Show Committee had a conference call on June 1 to discuss location options for rescheduling. As a three-breed show, these options are those that have the capacity for 400 to 500 head based on exhibition history. 

 

Our goal is to make a timely decision on dates and location by July 1. The Executive Show Committee will have a meeting on June 11 to evaluate each potential grounds prior to making a decision. 

 

Additionally, putting on a successful three-breed show at a location other than the Alliant Energy Center, will require assistance from volunteers. If you have interest in helping make the show a great experience for all, please contact Mara Budde, WHA, at marab@wisholsteins.com.

 

Please understand that we are working hard to figure out how to host this show. If you have questions, please contact Mara at marab@wisholsteins.com or a member of the Executive Show Committee. We thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
