The UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences will hold a ceremony for the integrated dairy modernization project at 10 a.m. July 30 at the Arlington Agricultural Research Station, on Badger Lane, off Highway 51 just north of the Dane County line in rural Arlington.
The completion of the $5.1 million Arlington dairy research facility is Phase 2 of a three-part project, which represents a renewed investment in dairy research on the part of the state.
Phase 1 was creation of a heifer-raising research center near Marshfield, completed in 2005. Phase 3 will be an upgrade for the dairy research facilities on the UW-Madison campus, scheduled to be considered for funding in the 2009-11 biennial budget.
