The Dairy Cattle Center is used for teaching 15 dairy science and Farm and Industry Short Course classes, hands-on training of new food animal veterinarians, and research projects that require close monitoring by campus-based scientists. It houses the Dr. Leland Allenstein Dairy Teaching Herd, which plays an important role in these efforts. The campus facility is integrated with larger dairy facilities at the university’s Arlington and Marshfield Agricultural Research Stations.
Walk-in visitors are welcome to view milking from 4:30 PM to 5:00 PM every weekday except during home football games. Campus facility tours are available based on area of interest and by reservation. Please call the Campus Visit Program at 608-265-9500 for more information.
