Dairy Expo moves from Feb. to April

The Canadian Dairy Expo will be held April 6 and 7 next year because of concerns about February weather.

But it might still snow in Stratford.

CDX officials say the Stratford Rotary Complex venue and the commercial dairy production focus will remain unchanged.

This year the show narrowly escaped disaster when snowstorms closed all the major roadways into Stratford for almost three days the week before the show.

April will also allow for more outdoor exhibit space and the potential construction of a large, onsite pole barn structure, say the organizers.

They conducted surveys which revealed that 73 per cent of the exhibitors and 72 per cent of producers prefer April over February.
