A Look Back at CDX 2019…
International Visitors Letter of Invitation for Travel Visa Applications
History of CDX
The Canadian Dairy XPO (CDX) is a professional tradeshow for dairy producers and their families to see the latest in innovation and be educated on producing safe nutritious dairy products. CDX is held at the Stratford Rotary Complex, in Perth County – which has the highest concentration of dairy farms in Canada.
Does Canada not deserve its own exclusive national dairy showcase? This was the question that CDX founder Jordon Underhill found himself asking when crossing the border from another World Dairy Expo road trip, to Madison Wisconsin. A cow crazy Canadian, 15+ years of travelling to international dairy events and a passion for advancing the Canadian dairy industry, all led to the inception of the CDX concept. Jordon felt strongly that the Canadian dairyman was well respected globally for genetic excellence and early adoption of innovation, but needed a national platform for continuous improvement and global showcase.
Drive down a side road in any Province of Canada and look to your left and look to your right. It won’t be long until you pass a well kept dairy operation and you will understand where the CDX positioning statement came from “Pride In Dairy”. The XPO makes effort to provide coverage in the 3 dominant dairy languages in Canada: English, French and Dutch.
Today – CDX is owned and operated by ROI Event Management, Jordon Underhill and his wife Donna Underhill. Operating from Guelph, ROI Event Management is a family run business of motivated and passionate agricultural people.
We proudly give back to local communities and donate to: local 4-H dairy clubs, Stratford Minor Hockey Association, Perth County Dairy Committee, Stratford Stingers Volleyball club and Stratford Ag Society.
