This edition of the Hick Chick Chat heads to the 2014 World Dairy Expo in Wisconsin. It’s the premiere event for the dairy industry. This year, exhibitors at the 2014 World Dairy Expo are the first to break in the New Holland Pavilions. My colleague, Jamie Johnansen was in Wisconsin this past week for the 2014 event.
A unique addition to the New Holland Pavilions is the touches of the past that have been archived in the new buildings. The entry way of Pavilion 1 has wood and bricks from the old barns capturing the history of this historic event. The 290,000 square foot pavilions replaced aging barns and will be home to a variety of dairy and livestock animals at future shows and expositions held at the Alliant Energy Center grounds. The pavilions have indoor show rings, riding areas and can comfortably house more than 2,000 head of livestock. They also have indoor and outdoor wash racks, covered manure storage and ample water and electrical capabilities.
