Progressive Dairyman has been selected as the official dairy publication of World Ag Expo 2012. Not only will the magazine be distributed at World Ag Expo, but dairy producers from across the country will begin receiving producer focused information in November to help them plan their visit to World Ag Expo.

"As Progressive Dairyman becomes the official dairy publication of World Ag Expo 2012, we look forward to providing our dairy attendees and exhibitors with a magazine that will help them get the most out of our show," said Jerry Sinift, CEO of the International Agri-Center. "Their proven track record of providing appealing editorial is just what our attendees from the dairy industry are looking for."

The 45th annual World Ag Expo, "Growing World Agriculture", will run February 14-16 at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, California. An estimated annual average of 100,000 individuals from 70 countries attend World Ag Expo each year.

"We are honored and excited to be partnering with the staff at the International Agri-Center to deliver 2012 World Ag Expo attendees a dairy-specific show issue," said Alan Leavitt, publisher of Progressive Dairyman. "World Ag Expo is a premiere trade show that greatly benefits all of agriculture, and its steady growth and non-stop improvement for the past nearly 50 years is truly admirable. We are looking forward to contributing to that steady growth pattern."

The Expo is the largest annual agricultural show of its kind with 1,600 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment on 2.6 million square feet of show grounds.

"Working with the world's largest annual agricultural exposition gives us the opportunity to more closely interact with many of our readers," said Walt Cooley, managing editor of Progressive Dairyman. "We're also excited to present forward-thinking ideas for progressive dairy producers at seminars during the show in February."
