MADISON (WKOW) – The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine says more than 60 volunteer students are checking the health of 2,500 cows for the World Dairy Expo.
As trailers head into the Alliant Energy Center for the expo, the students are examining health care papers submitted by veterinarians who have inspected the cattle.
Professor Sheila McGuirk said some of the cows have been on extremely long trips from points around the U.S. and Canada and need to be checked in quickly.
Cattle manager Laura Herschleg said last year the cows came from 37 states and seven provinces.
The World Dairy Expo is at the Alliant Energy Center October 2 to 6.
