One of the most prestigious events at World Dairy Expo each year is the annual awards banquet honoring the Dairy Woman of the Year, Dairy Man of the Year, Industry Person of the Year and International Person of the Year. Lisa Behnke says every year the honorees are nothing short of impressive.
Lisa also handles the media room at the show which hosts more than 200 journalists from 15 different countries. She says the biggest interest for the domestic reporters is the trade show while for the international reporters it’s the cattle. One note of interest, there are six flags flying in front of the north entrance to the Exposition Building, the U.S. flag and the flags of the top-five countries in attendance at the show.
