For nearly three decades, auction dollars have supported students approaching dairy processing with scholarships to help advance their education. Money raised at the Auction also funds WCMA’s popular training programs for dairy manufacturers and suppliers, and have fueled donations to build the world-class Center for Dairy Research facility in Madison, Wisconsin, as well as dairy pilot plants at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls and South Dakota State University.

Full registration for CheeseExpo includes access to hundreds of supplier exhibits, two full days of educational seminars led by dairy processing experts, ample networking opportunities, and celebrations of cheese industry excellence.

We look forward to seeing the results of the auction!
