MADISON - World Dairy Expo® is now accepting entries for its 52nd annual Dairy Cattle Show, Oct. 2 - 6, 2018, in Madison, Wisconsin.

Online and paper entry forms are due Aug. 31 by 11:59 p.m.(CST). Late entries may be submitted online through Sept. 9, and paper entries will be honored until the day of the show, both for an increased fee.

To be eligible to show, all animals must have an official Canadian CCIA or USDA AIN RFID or visual tag number listed on the entry form at the time of submission. Animals lacking this number — or with a pending identification status — will not be accepted.

For exhibitors residing within the United States and needing tags with an USDA AIN number, Datamars, Inc. is generously providing up to ten 840-series RFID tag sets per exhibitor. More information regarding identification requirements is included in the Premium Book.

Entry forms, the schedule of events, rules and other updates can also be found in the Premium Book — mailed to recent dairy cattle exhibitors on July 2, or available online at www.worlddairyexpo.com.

New exhibitors may request a copy of the Premium Book by contacting Laurie Breuch, Dairy Cattle Show Coordinator, at lbreuch@wdexpo.com or Ann Marie Magnochi, Dairy Cattle Show Manager, at amagnochi@wdexpo.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.
