One of the largest agricultural events in Wisconsin begins today as World Dairy Expo opens its gates in Madison. Officials with the dairy and trade show say they expect about 70,000 people from over 90 countries to attend the five-day event through Saturday.

The festivities kicked off Monday with the National 4-H Dairy Cattle Judging Contest, National Intercollegiate & International Post-Secondary Dairy Cattle Judging Contests, 4-H Awards Banquet and the International Post-Secondary Judging Contest Awards Banquet.

Tuesday's show ring activities include the International Junior Holstein Show, Central National Ayrshire Show and Central National Jersey Show. The FFA Dairy Judging Contests will also be held today. And the World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest will hold an auction of all first place winners on Tuesday, where all proceeds will go youth dairy programs.

As always, the show will feature its traditional trade show, free educational seminars, virtual farm tours and plenty of concessions during each of the event's five days.

World Dairy Expo is being held at the Alliant Energy Center. Daily entrance fees are $8 per person, or $25 for a season pass. Hours for the event run from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily.
