The World Dairy Expo this week announced it has opened its online entry system. The show is scheduled for Oct. 1-5, 2013, at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis.
The online entry system, 2013 Premium Book, and all accompanying forms can be accessed on the Dairy Cattle Show & Sales page at worlddairyexpo.com.
The system allows exhibitors to enter their animals, purchase a tent and/or booth space and show season passes. Stalling requests, youth showmanship and fitting contest entries, Futurity entries and judge nominations can all be submitted using the online entry system.
Exhibitors will be able to refer back to their entries after making payments.
Exhibitors entering online may take advantage of a $3 per animal entry fee discount when complete animal name, registration number and Animal Identification Number 15-digit number information is provided. Pending information for these fields will not be eligible to receive the discount.
Entries must be submitted and payment transaction completed by August 31, 2013. The discount is only offered with the initial online entry and payment. A refund for the discount will not be granted when further data is provided after payment. The entry discount is not valid with paper entry.
Premium Books have been mailed to recent years' exhibitors. Request a printed Premium Book by contacting World Dairy Expo at 608-224-6455. Paper entry forms will still be accepted again this year.
While the initial entry deadline is Aug. 31, exhibitors may use the online entry system and pay by credit card until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013. All applicable fees apply for entries made after August 31.
