In 1890 the first dairy foods short course in the United States was established at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Since then, the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Department of Food Science, and the Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research have been leaders in research and outreach education beneficial to the dairy industry and consumers. The UW Food Science Department and Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research continue to provide quality outreach education to fit the expanded needs of the food industry in today’s environment.
