Dairy Program

B Karle
Specific programs in Dairy Science address the complex issues of animal health and welfare, dairy waste management, and water quality. Programs are developed locally, but have a national scope, serving to improve the quality and safety of milk and dairy foods and to encourage environmentally sound dairy management.
