State and county officials joined New Holland executives and other industry partners for the ceremony that took place outside the $24.9 million facility.

“With the addition of the New Holland Pavilions, every livestock and agriculture association needs to consider Alliant Energy Center and Madison, Wisconsin, when looking for a place to hold their next event,” says Mark Clarke, Alliant Energy Center Executive Director. “These pavilions give us the tool in our tool belt we have not had before. They allow us the opportunity to offer world-class facilities that the users deserve. We appreciate New Holland’s leadership in this successful public/private partnership.”

The 290,000 square foot pavilions replaced aging barns and will be home to a variety of dairy and livestock animals at future shows and expositions held at the Alliant Energy Center grounds. The pavilions have indoor show rings, riding areas and can comfortably house more than 2,000 head of livestock. They also have indoor and outdoor wash racks, covered manure storage and ample water and electrical capabilities.
