Managing the milk.
Dairy products — such as milk, butter and cheese — are an important part of the
American diet, and they play a critical role in the global agriculture economy.
This program focuses on the efficient production of high-quality dairy products. You will
learn all aspects of milk production, from the physiology of lactation to the management
of a modern dairy. Explore animal nutrition and reproduction, dairy production and
manufacturing, farm management, and other topics.
Much of your education will take place in the on-campus labs and animal centers, where
you might learn how to maximize the value of retail cuts or explore pregnancy rates
and grazing management systems. You could also help care for more than 100 milking
Holsteins at the university’s dairy research and teaching center.
