World Dairy Expo unveiled a new dairy cattle entry system that is now available to exhibitors wishing to make entries to this year's show. The new program utilizes the latest online registration technology while maintaining an easy-to-use and exhibitor-friendly system.
The new system will allow exhibitors to enter their animals, purchase a tent and/or booth space and show season passes. New to the system, exhibitors will be able to refer back to their entries after making payments. Stalling requests, youth showmanship or fitting contest entries, futurity entries and judges nominations can all be submitted using the new entry system as well.
Check-in for each breed show will be performed with the use of tablets, increasing the efficiency and accuracy of the shows. Show management expects to see more accurate class results, generated more quickly. However, late entries or substitutions will still need to be done in person at the Expo Office.
Premium Books have already been mailed to recent year's exhibitors. New exhibitors can locate the Premium Book on the website. Exhibitors may request a printed Premium Book by contacting World Dairy Expo. Paper entry forms will still be accepted as in the past.
"Market Fresh" is the theme for World Dairy Expo 2012, which will take place Tuesday, Oct. 2, through Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin. For show schedule and further information, visit www.worlddairyexpo.com.
