Watch Now: World Dairy Expo Returns But With Few International Attendees | Economic news

“Showing off gave me a lot of self-confidence as a kid,” said Hushon, 40, who is at his 25th consecutive Expo. “From a professional point of view, this is an important opportunity for our company. Over the years, I have built many successful relationships and I love people so much. I just love cows and cow-loving people, and there’s no better place than World Dairy Expo for both. “

Brenda Murphy and her brother, Brian Behnke, grew up on a dairy farm in the city of Brooklyn. Murphy is now the Director of Communications and Farmer Programs at Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, formerly known as the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, responsible for increasing the consumption and sale of Wisconsin milk. Murphy has a booth in the exhibit hall this week and has helped source artisan cheeses from all over the state for sale at the grilled cheese booth.

“Without World Dairy Expo last year, there was a big hole,” said Murphy, 46. “Not only is this important to the Madison community because the businesses around it need income, but for us as people there are so many friendships being built here.”
