SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — With the city of Sioux Falls declaring a state of emergency due to the spread of COVID-19, the Central Plains Dairy Expo was canceled. The I-29 Moo University Dairy Beef Short Course has traditionally led the Expo. As a premier dairy beef event, it has been transitioned to a webinar to minimize any possible exposure to the virus.

The short course will still take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, with a one-hour break from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.

The new format has removed restrictions on attendance, so additional registrations can be made at A registration fee will be payable online. Registration will remain open until Tuesday.
