Students in the Dairy and Food Science Department have numerous opportunities to enhance their education through gaining practical experience and networking with industry professionals. Some of the ways that our students diversify their education is through clubs, judging teams, and internships. Two clubs for students in the department include the Dairy Club and the Food Science Club. Three judging teams for our students include Dairy Cattle Judging, Dairy Products Judging, and Dairy Challenge.
Take a look at what our students are doing now!
