With the COVID-19 situation continuing to evolve, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 World Brown Swiss Conference, originally scheduled for September 28 – October 3, Madison, WI. While we are extremely disappointed to make this announcement, we feel that it is our responsibility to follow the guidelines and recommendations of health authorities and governmental entities and do our part to ensure that our associates and partners stay safe and healthy.
We are, however, very excited to announce the rescheduled dates for the World Brown Swiss Conference will be September 26 – 30, 2021, at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin, USA! The conference schedule will be similar to this year with a few modifications. It will continue to give attendees the opportunity to exchange ideas and information with other breeders from 25+ different countries. Conference attendees will have the chance to experience the International Brown Swiss Show and World Premier Sale during the World Dairy Expo. This combination of elite Brown Swiss cattle and World Dairy Expo’s innovative, industry-leading trade show, will make for a very special event!
Today, the beautiful Brown Swiss cattle can be found across the globe. The world population of Brown Swiss is reported to be about 5 million, which ranks as one of the highest in world-wide population of dairy cattle. Brown Swiss yield large volumes of milk with high components, boasting an ideal fat-to-protein ratio for cheese-making. For this reason, most Brown Swiss producers receive more money per 100 pounds of milk than owners of other breeds.
