From anywhere on the grounds, there are a variety of ways to keep up-to-date
World Dairy Expo has been attracting new visitors and new fans from around the world each year. While some get a chance to travel to the famed "colored shavings," some rely on a vast array of communication tools to keep them connected with the biggest dairy event in the world.
It all depends on the viewer’s choice. Dairy industry enthusiasts can connect via website, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, ExpoTV or ExpoFM. Each provides a touch point to keep Expo attendees, exhibitors and international followers abreast of the latest results and show highlights.
World Dairy Expo’s dairy cattle shows will again be webcast live from www.worlddairyexpo.com. Known as ExpoTV, it is the next best thing to being ringside. This free coverage is made possible by sponsors afimilk USA Ltd., BouMatic, Merial, Milk Source Genetics, Sexing Technologies and Z Tags North America, LP. ExpoTV has become very popular with the family members and employees who can’t make it to the "Big Show."
A new center-hung video scoreboard has been installed that features 472 sq. ft. of video screens for the best viewing of ExpoTV. This translates into better visibility from most of the seats in the Showring. The new scoreboard replaces the large screen that was built into the various theme decorations in recent years.
In addition, large monitors will be strategically placed around the event grounds so that attendees can capture dairy cattle class results as they stroll through the exhibits and barns.
ExpoFM. Expo fans can hear audio being simulcast on the radio station while they are busy on the grounds on 95.5 FM. The show is also broadcast live from Expo’s website, www.worlddairyexpo.com.
