The 2016 World Dairy Expo judges were announced by the organization today. The eight individuals will place over 2,000 head of cattle next fall on the colored shavings in the Alliant Energy Center's coliseum building. Many of this year's judges already have experience in the ring, with a combined 18 previous official or associate appointments among them at World Dairy Expo.
Official judges are selected through a voting procedure by the exhibitors. Associate judges will be named later by the official judges.
