Last week, Senator Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) introduced Senate Bill 186 that calls for investing $7.9M in dairy research at UW–Madison, UW–Platteville and UW–River Falls. Should the measure pass, it would represent a base budget increase to CALS of more than $4M for agricultural research.
Dean Kate VandenBosch joined the bill’s sponsors and deans from UW–Platteville and UW–River Falls at a press conference announcing the Dairy Innovation Hub legislation on May 1. Four CALS faculty members and several CALS alumni testified in support of the measure at a hearing before the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Revenue and Financial Institutions.Dairy plant-CDR, Highlights and tagged food science, dairy science, top by Nicole.
