Huffard was not the only DFA member present at WDE. Many members from across the nation were among the 70,000 people from the United States and countries around the world who attended WDE in Madison, Wis.

Designed for producers and industry partners, WDE is where the dairy industry annually meets for five days of events, exhibitions and world-class dairy foods and products.

Among the many events were dairy cattle shows, virtual farm tours and seminars on new research and technology in the industry, all of which fit this year’s theme of "Designer Dairy."

The virtual tours included two DFA members: Rokeyroad Holsteins of Sabetha, Kan., and Twin Birch Dairy of Skaneateles, N.Y. (Click the links to watch their virtual farm tours)
