Students from Sheboygan Falls went to the Dairy Expo through FFA.  Going there you learn a lot, even if you aren’t a part of the dairy industry. There are many things we don’t know about dairy. In the main building, there are little stations with different supplies relating to dairy.  Most of them set out free nick nacks for people to grab while they walk by.  Some of the vendors have demonstrations.  Even if someone isn’t interested in dairy, it all still is very interesting.  World Dairy Expo offers information about the latest technologies in the Dairy business. There are also events showing cows as well as barns to see the cows.

World Dairy Expo is considered to be the largest dairy cattle show in North America. It has been held in the first week of October since 1967. This year, over 80,000 dairymen came from 94 different countries. For some of the people that show at world dairy expo, or set up vendors, all they have ever known is farming.

The thing that most interested us were the waterbeds for cows. It seemed weird to me at first, like is there actually a benefit? The benefit is that it prevents infections like mastitis, which can negatively affect milk production. These waterbeds move with the cow’s skin to avoid scraping. The other plus of waterbeds is the maintenance. It is very easy to install and it dries super quick because it’s made out of a sticky rubber.
