PETA Calls World Dairy Expo to Cancel
Wisconsin Ag Connection Editors - 05/25/2001

An animal rights group is calling for the cancellation of World Dairy Expo this year. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, says there are too many risks for spreading Foot-and-Mouth Disease by holding the annual fall show in Madison. The group even stated that the spread of FMD 'would be a good thing for the U.S. because more people would become vegetarians.'
In a letter sent to WDE this week, PETA mentioned that people from all over the world will be gathering in the same small place, making everyone vulnerable to contracting the disease. Expo officials announced last month that they will continue to hold the show along with a new biosecurity plan to keep the disease from entering the event.

The World Dairy Expo attracts about 70,000 to Wisconsin each year from over 75 countries.
