More than 130 projects have been funded so far across the participating Wisconsin college campuses of the Dairy Innovation Hub. That’s according to the group’s latest annual report, which was released this week by Faculty Director Dr. Heather White.
“Having positive impact on the dairy community is what the Hub set out to do three years ago,” Dr. White said, who is an assistant professor of nutritional physiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “Through faculty hires, training and educating students, funding innovative research, and prioritizing collaboration and communication, we are ensuring that Wisconsin remains strong and at the forefront of the dairy community.”
The Dairy Innovation Hub harnesses research and development at the University of Wisconsin campuses in Madison, River Falls and Platteville to keep Wisconsin’s dairy community at the global forefront in producing nutritious dairy products in an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable manner.
