World Dairy Expo Wrapping Up

The dairy industry has went through some serious changes in the last decade. In east central Illinois, the only dairy I am aware of is the Stone Ridge Dairy, near Bellflower Illlinois.

Even with the changes however, the World Dairy Expo is still going strong as ever:

Be one of more than 65,000 dairy industry enthusiasts who make the trip to
World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. It's the international meeting place for
the dairy industry. Expo offers the most elite combination of dairy cattle and
exhibits in the world.
You'll find the most modern dairy equipment and the newest dairy technology and innovations, including animal health supplies, milking systems, feeding products, forage handling and manure equipment plus embryos, semen and genetic research. You'll see North America's top dairy cattle compete for honors in seven breed shows. Throughout the week meet herd owners inthe barns, place your bids at five cattle auctions and then watch the Parade of Champions and the selection of World Dairy Expo's Supreme Champion. While you are at World Dairy Expo you can also take advantage of free education seminars on dairy management and other industry issues. These seminars offer technical expertise to help you stay knowledgeable, competitive and profitable.
Explore a variety of farms from around the world and never leave the grounds by
participating in World Dairy Expo's Virtual Farm Tours. The farm tours,
presented by the producers themselves, are the destination for attendees looking
to learn more from their peers.
