World Dairy Expo: Watch Farm Tour Videos

World Dairy Expo Virtual Farm ToursWorld Dairy Expo Virtual Farm Tours have been bringing the best dairy operations in North America to Madison for more than 15 years. The eight dairies selected this year are no exception, featuring technology and innovation, outstanding milk production and genetics, strong community ties and first-generation immigrant farmers, top-notch cow and

calf care and an expanding dairy. These tours begin with a half-hour visual presentation of the operation by the owner or herd manager, followed by time for questions and an open discussion. Tours are presented daily, Tuesday through Saturday, in the Mendota 1 of the Exhibition Hall.
