Dairy focus of expansion at World Ag Expo

The largest agricultural exposition in the world will expand to include an additional 9,200 m2 of dairy exhibits. On Tuesday visitors can attend the free seminars on pressing issues in US agriculture.

The World Ag Expo is an annual event held in Tulare, California, USA, right
in the heart of the main dairy producing region in the
country.

“Producers from all over the world travel to Tulare to gather
industry leading technology and information,” said Jerry Sinift, general manager
of the International Agri-Center, producer of World Ag Expo.

With more
than 500 exhibit spaces already dedicated to dairy production, the expansion
will add up to 130 new dairy exhibits. The majority of the new exhibit space
will be in the Dairy Technology Center, presented by Bella Health Systems; a
large indoor canvas covered structure.

The remaining space will be
devoted to outdoor dairy related exhibits, Sinift noted. Total exhibit space at
the Expo is more than 240,000 m2.

Attendees are encouraged to stop by the
new expansion area and see the Top Five New Dairy Products showcased in the DTC,
enter to win a cow from Bella Health Systems and visit with leading dairy
companies and organizations.
