World Dairy Expo Virtual Farm Tours have brought the best dairy operations in North America to Madison for more than 15 years. The eight dairies to be featured during WDE 2019 excel in a variety of farm aspects including genetics, technology, community engagement, environmental stewardship, cow comfort and multi-generations, while also representing a wide variety of sizes, locations and breeds. Virtual Farm Tours are presented daily during World Dairy Expo in Mendota Room 1 of the Exhibition Hall, and are led by the farm’s owner or manager with time for questions and an open discussion to follow.
