The World Dairy Expo Virtual Farm Tours, held annually during Expo, give attendees an opportunity to tour a variety of different farms without ever leaving the Expo grounds. The 2015 tours will showcase the latest technology and innovative farm management practices. These free tours include a half-hour visual presentation of the operation with time for questions and discussion afterwards. Tours are presented daily throughout Expo in the Exhibition Hall Mendota 1 meeting room. All presentations will be available for viewing after the show on the Expo website.
